Statement on UC Davis

Radical Philosophy condemns the police brutality on the UC Davis campus on November 18th 2011 and the UC administration’s continuing use of violence to suppress faculty and student protest against the privatization of the UC system.

We support the students and faculty members in their continuing protests, the open letter by Nathan Brown (Assistant Professor in the Department of English at UC Davis and Radical Philosophy contributor) calling for Chancellor Linda Katehi’s immediate resignation, and the official statement from the board of the Davis Faculty Association calling for the chancellor’s resignation and for a policy to end the forcible removal of student/faculty protesters from campus (there is also a petition relating to these demands here).
