This is just the beginning of the beginning...

[update: email any questions, contributions and suggestions to cutsandkettles at

However, please post as a comment on this post if it is something that many people might ask, like the query about copyright posted earlier today...]

Well, what a first term we've had! Students across the world have protested, demonstrated, occupied and, to our horror, been brutalised by the mighty arm of the State/s.

Our mission is now to curate and edit the most fabulous compilation of student and youth struggles from around the world. We will publish the book through Verso Books, with assistance from Tariq Ali, in February 2011.

With sections including:

Struggles in France, Spain, Greece, Italy, America and Britain...

We are now seeking your input to what looks to be a very inspiring collection. This book is about you, about our actions, about what we have all done collectively so it is only right that we compile it collectively.

Please send us your best photos, videos, stories and suggestions. We will choose the most appropriate material and contact you with any queries before sending to print.

We will set up different blog posts for each section of the book and a flickr group to collate photos.

Any suggestions on how to make this a painless process are welcome!

All proceeds from the book will go to a worthy Student cause (to be democratically decided)

We look forward to working with you,

Clare Solomon ULU President and Laurie Penny, contributor to the New Statesman (amongst other things)

In solidarity...
