Notice to Quit

This terse Notice to Quit was issued today to the occupiers in Senate House.


In the summer 1970 issue of Shinx, Dave Robertson wrote of this document:

Unity was experienced at other times. The notice to quit from the Registrar had two effects: one, derision; two, an increased feeling of community defence. This note from the Registrar became symbolic. The external attack upon the occupation in the form of a curiously typed note was all that the university bureaucrats represented for us: the other end of an official communication. They were not people; they were appendages of an IBM typewriter, feeding inadequate responses into an unresponsive machine.
