Despite the event occurring mid-exams, today's protest gathered around 150 students at the Faculty Building to deliver the message 'give us back our humanities' to Rector, Sir Roy Anderson.

Good work guys!

Sorry icouldn't be counted amongst the ranks. Is the end of apathy in imperial students? I do hope so!

[Yes, i see the hypocrasy of lamenting apathy and not actually being at the protest my self]

Jun 03 2009 20:25

Well done guys! I hope 'the cube' listen...

the video isn't working

@9. The video seems to have stopped working, indeed. I'm sure it'll be fixed in the morning. I think it's an issue of space on the server...

Jun 03 2009 23:51

Video is fixed, at least until someone tries to correct the typos by re-publishing the article.

Love the way prolifictv have taken the sound from the echoing chants underneath the Faculty Building and overlaid it to the students on Dalby Court at the end. Sounds impressive.

I wonder if the camerman's mum has killed him yet. When his camera ran out of battery he tried to use that as an excuse to take one from our camera bag without permission! Lawrence wasn't happy. :o)

I run the risk of p***ing on the parade here, but can't the protest be only classed as a "great success" if college do not go through with the planned cuts? As far as I can tell, the cuts are still going through. What is the next step going to be?

Not quite sure where the 150 people came from, more likely to be 80 or so. I don't think the Rector was even in the building, making it hard for him to see what was happening. The idea the protest will make any difference is sadly wrong.

The number of signatures collected on Queen's Lawn was allegedly 150.
