Delivering engaging and culturally relevant long-reads direct to your inbox, Manchester’s new online newspaper The Mill has quickly made a name for itself as a place to inspect cultural issues from across the North, written by a selection of journalists who’s credits range from the Guardian to the New York Times. By signing up for their free online service, you too can receive their regular news round-ups and find out what the fuss is about. Among their latest batch of editorials is writer Mollie Simpson’s account of the recent student protests at the University of Manchester, which involved a group of students occupying Owens Park Tower in Fallowfield in protest of extortionate living costs amid a university year that left them feeling decidedly short changed. To read the full piece and hear directly from some of the activists involved, visit The Mill’s website.
