The Guardian Reports on the Forced Eviction

The Guardian Newspaper reported today (Monday 2nd Feb) on the violent eviction of the peaceful student protesters conducted by Nottingham University Authorities. The article can be read in full here. An extract:

One student involved, who asked not to be named for fear of disciplinary action, said: “The protest was very peaceful and we said there would be no disruption to lectures taking place. But officials decided to cancel all lectures without consulting anyone.”

University managers closed the building and switched off the power supply over the weekend, before forcibly evicting students on Sunday evening.

The student claimed that some protesters had been injured as they were forcibly removed.

    Thanks to all the students who have participated in the protest occupations in solidarity with Gaza.

    I hope the violence used by Nottingham would not deter students currently holding protest occupations in solidarity with Gaza.

    Your protests send a strong message to Israeli students. In the current climate in Israel, when most of them support the slaughter of Gaza, only a few students have the courage to speak up against the Israeli war crimes. As an Israeli I can assure you that your courage would encourage a few more Israeli students to speak up.

    Given that too few governments dare even denounce the Israeli onslaught against the 1.5 defenceless Palestinians, your voice is important. Thanks for your courage.

    In Solidarity
