Abstract or Description

9th of December 2010, around 3pm, after a seminar with my students, I join my friends at the demonstration in Parliament Square. I go there from Goldsmiths College with one of my students, we walk arm in arm, acting as if we were tourists, as a light-hearted couple admiring the buildings in Whitehall, indifferent towards the police all along the road, and laughing, enjoying this silly performance. We just had a seminar where we discussed the current planning of the demolition of the UK education system, the devastation of places like Goldsmiths, where the public funding will be cut 100% and the fees raised to 9.000 pounds a year. The places that are going to be privatized completely are precisely those where what is asked to students is not so much to collect knowledge, but to think critically.
