Notice to Quit

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

Footnote

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.
