Ivory Tower under attack

Scientific knowledge all too often stays within the confines of academia. At least, so says a group of international students calling themselves Concepts Liberation Commando.

To get that knowledge out into the big wide world they threw open all the windows in the Forum on Friday 22 February.
They ran around the building with tights over their heads handing out notes reading 'free the concept'.
The group describes itself as non-violent and idealistic, their mission to promote better practical application of scientific knowledge.
