RALLY - Picket Board of Governor's Chair, 2nd July 1pm

1pm-2pm, Thurs 2nd July 2009
International Student House
Save London Met
Defend jobs, defend education

Jeremy Corbyn MP and Mark Serwotka (Public & Commercial Services union General Secretary), among others, will be speaking.

Why there?
Peter Anwyl, who is the Director of International Student House, is Chair of the Board of Governors for London Met Uni. That's the Board that oversaw this whole fiasco. See comments from HEFCE in the last report here:

“The author of the DIUS memo, whose identity is withheld, reveals that a Hefce-commissioned report provided by consultants BDO that scrutinised data handling at London Met was “extremely critical” of the institution’s processes and its governing body’s lack of oversight....

“This report was considered so incendiary by London Met that lawyers acting for Brian Roper, its former vice-chancellor, and a number of the university’s governors threatened to sue Hefce for defamation if it was published, the documentation reveals.

“The memo from the DIUS official, dated January this year, says the BDO report “will strengthen the [Hefce] board’s lack of confidence” in London Met’s management.”
