>> As many of you will already know, two members of the Radical  
>> Philosophy collective - Peter Hallward and Peter Osborne - have  
>> been suspended from their jobs at Middlesex University, along with  
>> several students, as a result of their campaigning against the  
>> closure of the Philosophy Department there. We would urge all our  
>> readers and subscribers to support the campaign against this  
>> scandalous action in any way they can.
>> Yesterday morning, May 26th, Osborne and Hallward were denied  
>> managerial permission to attend an emergency meeting of their  
>> union, the UCU, scheduled for Friday 28 May. They were also denied  
>> permission to attend the UCU annual general meeting scheduled for  
>> next Wednesday, and a meeting of the University's self-constituted  
>> Professors Group.
>> Collective pressure to greylist i.e. boycott Middlesex University  
>> is growing rapidly. The external examiners for the Middlesex  
>> Philosophy department have already announced their refusal to  
>> collaborate with next month's assessment boards, and colleagues in  
>> other departments may soon follow suit. A boycott by external  
>> examiners will have a significant and immediate impact on the  
>> University. The poet Michael Rosen has already renounced his  
>> visiting professor at Middlesex.
>> John Protevi and Todd May have posted a petition calling for an  
>> international academic boycott of Middlesex University, http://www.gopetition.com/petitions/academic-boycott-of-middlesex-university.html
>> Several hundred well-placed people have already signed it, in the  
>> space of a few hours. Please spread the word about this, far & wide.
>>  Confirmed speakers for a rally at Hendon on Thursday 27 May from  
>> 4pm include Alex Callinicos (KCL), Richard George (Campaign for  
>> Better Transport; Plane Stupid), Paul Gilroy (LSE), Nina Power  
>> (Roehampton), Jim Wolfreys (UCU), among others. Please circulate  
>> the rally announcement and flyer (http://savemdxphil.com/) to  
>> everyone who might
>> be sympathetic.
