    Add me as supporter as well!

    I’m out of town at the mo (starting term a little late) but send my support from afar.

  2. Please add my name. I’m a PhD candidate in the Theology and Religious Studies department.

  3. Hello,

    I’d like to add my support to the sentiments expressed above.

    Well done on surviving the first day. I commend you for choosing an extremely worthwhile cause for the first protest on campus of the year.

    I write in solidarity with those who’ve lost their lives and their families in the recent events in Gaza, and I advocate for independent investigations into alleged war crimes.
