Police bullying at Camp Kingsnorth

07-08-2008 22:06

I’ve just returned from a 2-3 day sojourn at the Climate Camp at Kingsnorth — site of a proposed new coal-fired power station – which is now gearing up towards its climax.

McCarthy-style Purges in a South African university?

Centre for Civil Society

As the following article suggests, reasons for this are shoddy at best, and clearly point to this being a political decision on the part of the University to snuff out its left brain.
