Just before Thanksgiving break, UC Berkeley's chancellor officially signed off on denying tenure to Ignacio Chapela. Ignacio would like to thank everyone for their support during this incredibly difficult process.

In true Ignacio style, he has arranged an extraordinary conversation with other academics who've been victims of corporate terrorizing of the university by biotech firms, following shortly on the heels of the chancellor's decision.

This conversation will take place at 155 Dwinelle Hall next Wednesday, Dec. 10 from 7-9pm.

This is open to the public, so please spread the word, and it would be wonderful to see any of the retort group there who can attend. There will be a  live webcast for those who are unable to make it.
