”When police beat Alfie Meadows to an inch of his life during the demonstration of 9 December 2010, they attacked not just the students who are trying to defend what’s left of universal education but everyone who is determined to resist the government’s catastrophic neo-liberal programme. At Middlesex University, Alfie’s enthusiasm and clarity helped tip the balance at several key moments in the campaign to save his Philosophy department in the spring of 2010, and he participated fully in the subsequent campaign to save higher education as a whole. Alfie should be celebrated as a model of political principle and egalitarian commitment, and his attacker prosecuted for a near-lethal assault. Instead it’s Alfie who is on trial, while police violence is condoned. Please join us at Kingston Crown Court on Monday 26 March to protest this profoundly scandalous situation, and to help ensure that justice is done.” PETER HALLWARD, KINGSTON UNIVERSITY
