Alan Simpson, Nottingham South MP, delivered a poignant and powerful lecture to a packed audience of students, staff and the general public on the situation in Gaza and the way forward for activists working for peace. In the occupied lecture theatre at Nottingham University, Alan described his past experiences visiting Gaza and expressed his solidarity with the student occupation movement. He said: “The world only changes for the better when those who have voices stand up alongside those who do not. So it is with Gaza. Congratulations on your stand and your solidarity.”
A podcast, video and transcript of the lecture will be available soon.
