UCU Left sends solidarity Greetings to University Solidarity Russia.
From their website;
An independent Russian university teachers’ union has been set up at a conference in Moscow on 29 April attended by delegates from 13 regions. The conference was preceded by lengthy discussion on policies and aims in activist networks.
Low pay, swingeing cuts and academic freedoms are high on the agenda of the new organisation. It has appeared amidst a wave of activism in universities, part of the general protest movement in Russia in the last two years.
