To me this argument makes a lot of sense, an honorable way of defending University autonomy –
The University of Malta’s autonomy risked being violated if staff and students complied with the government’s call to close, Prof. [Mark Anthony] Falzon said.
“It’s outrageous that the university is asked by the government to close and everybody complies. We are not paid to be docile,” he said.

I agree with the professor and if one follows what happens in other European universities one would notice that rebels are born and made in universities where one learns to be critical and analytical.
But things happen differently here. Our educational system teaches our students how to obey and follow, how to conform and please.

Would he have reacted the same if we had a Nationalist government?
OK i get his point but….. I don’t think that this is a case to rebel on, we had more serious issues which were shoved under the carpet and the Rebel unceremoniously crucified.
Security personel are the experts on events of national proportions.
