We write as concerned alumni, staff and students of the University of Nottingham inresponse to the article “University secretly films students to monitor potential extremists”which appeared in The Observer on Sunday 12th June 2011. These revelations of allegedserious misconduct by University senior management follow a release of confidentialinternal documentsby Unileaks. Of particular concern to us are new detailsof covert surveillance of student protesters and the maintenance of databases monitoringArab and Palestinian-themedeventsby university management.
