150 people attend first meeting of the campaign

Students, tutors, staff and members of the public packed out a meeting room in the Centre for Lifelong Learning on Monday night.

Many people spoke passionately about the centre's work and how the campaign is determined to reverse the decision to cut Humanities and Welsh from the teaching programme.

The University's plans were described as "barbaric" and "short-sighted" by those who attended.

Representatives of UCU were also present and spoke of how the union will be throwing their weight behind the campaign.

Many people signed up with offers to help with the campaign and a big thanks to all.

The next meeting will be held in the centre a week tonight - Tuesday 5th May 7pm

everyone is welcome.
