MESSAGE OF SUPPORT FROM MANCHESTER ART HISTORY AND VISUAL STUDIES

“We, the undersigned, strongly support the peaceful occupation of the Roscoe Building in protest against the proposed higher education funding cuts. The withdrawal of government funding to the Humanities and Social Sciences can only do untold damage to the provision of teaching and research in these vital areas. To put the the financial onus entirely on the shoulders of future students will only discourage students from less advantaged backgrounds from applying to university. The government is following the principle of knowing the cost of everything and the value of nothing. If it succeeds, university education will be a poorer and far less diverse experience.
