<nettime> G20: Campus Control / Academic Freedom / Chris Knight


"On March 26, the Corporate Management Team at the University of East London suspended Chris Knight for 'gross professional misconduct'.  Among other things, his crime was to proceed with organizing the Alternative G20 Summit despite his employers' decision to close down the entire campus at the last minute (http://www.PetitionOnline.com/mod_perl/signed.cgi?openUEL   ).

Chris' disciplinary hearing is scheduled for Friday July 10th. Friends and comrades wishing to defend him against possible dismissal will find more information here:

Please add your name together with any comment you may have to this petition:
