Message of Support from Manchester Philosophy Department

“To everyone at the Roscoe Occupation

Staff from Philosophy would like to express their support for the
peaceful demonstrations by University of Manchester students against
the proposed cuts to Higher Education funding. We, the undersigned,
oppose the removal of government funding for the teaching of the Arts,
Humanities and Social Sciences. We believe that the proposals will
have detrimental consequences for Higher Education Institutions in
Britain and that they seriously misrepresent the value of Arts,
Humanities and Social Sciences in fostering independent and critical
thought. We also believe that the raising of tuition fees will place
unfair financial burdens on graduates and that this is likely to
increase social inequality.  We support our students in their
resistance the government’s proposals and in their occupation of the
Roscoe Building.
