Student at Manchester Metropolitan University should continue there fight to have MMU cancel their contract with Veolia. Failing that, it is time students started boycotting Manchester Metropolitan University. Not only for their employment of Veolia but also because of the way they have treated the people of Hulme. John Brooks the vice-chancellor, conducted secret deals with Manchester City Council, to build a campus on Birley Fields. This is totally unacceptable behaviour from a Higher Education establishment which boast it serves the community. It does not, it even tells it’s students, even those live in hall of residence in Hulme, not to go into Hulme. They claim to be building a green campus when they have felled scores of trees and want to fell another 50. And their energy plant is to be powered by natural gas, a finite resource, imported and emits CO2. How is this green?
Amid stiff opposition, Israel occupation profiteer Veolia abandons big London waste bid in final stage.
