Free Our Books, Free our Knowledge

The campaign demands are simple: all publically funded research should be avaialble FREE to the public. 

We’re not saying that printing and distributing books should stop. Nor that private companies are useless, nor that they are not needed. It is the current model, in which citizens have to pay for academic books and research papers twice, in which private companies control and profit from funding only a tiny part of the production process, that should be abolished and replaced with a new one.

You can read all about the campaign at the Free Our Books blog

We would like to extend this principle to provide free education at ULU througha whole host of programs:  lectures, music, theatre, poetry slams, banner making and motion writing sessions and much, much more.
