Defend Arts and Humanities

In the wake of the demonstration in the UK this week it is encouraging to note that people are beginning to link up arguments being carried on in different places around the same kind of end. In this light the news of struggles being carried over at a new blog devoted to defence of the arts and humanities is one good sign.

Similarly, a recent report in the Guardian shows that the struggle around the defence of the universities in the wake of austerity cuts is winning support amongst general trades unions and this indicates more ways in which the struggle is spreading and being generalised. This is the time to intensify struggle on these questions as this is the only way to reverse the decisions of governments and university heads.
