Cathy hello.

You are supposed to do what you feel appropriate to satisfy your own
reasoning. Personally, I would say a withdraw from your Masters a little
radical at this point. Perhaps your energy would be better served at making
your peer group and academics aware of the situation and reasons for the
petition?

My protest will see me boycotting the University policy of having module
plans available on Blackboard this academic year.

Hope that helps

Chris
