NOTTINGHAM UNIVERSITY OCCUPATION TO DEMAND ACTION FOR THE PEOPLE OF GAZA
Students at the University of Nottingham are occupying lecture theatre B62 of the Law and Social Sciences building on the University campus, in a move to demand urgent action from their institution for Gaza.
Over the past four weeks, Israel has unleashed the might of it’s military against a defenseless population living in one of the most crowded places on earth. These attacks are still ongoing and have now destroyed the civilian infrastructure and left thousands of civilians, including hundreds of children, dead.
The appalling Israeli attacks have cost the lives of over 1,300 Palestinians, injuring and maimed many thousands. Tens of thousands of civilians have been left homeless and displaced. Head of the UN Palestinian refugee agency in Gaza, John Ging, is now joining international calls for an investigation into the war crimes of recent action. Israel stands accused of using banned weapons such as phosphorus bombs, attacking medical facilities, including the killing of 12 ambulance men in marked vehicles, and killing large numbers of policemen who had no military role, amongst numerous other atrocious crimes.
Motivated by the escalating crisis in Gaza, University of Nottingham students have occupied space on campus and issued a set of demands to the University management calling for immediate action. We stand in solidarity with students at the School of Oriental and African Studies, the London School of Economics, King’s College London, Birmingham, Essex Warwick, Sussex, Oxford, Manchester Metropolitan, Cambridge, Leeds, Newcastle, Queen Mary’s, and Bradford Universities; all of whom have occupied parts of their Universities in support of Gaza.
We welcome all those who are concerned about the plight of the people of Gaza to come along and join us in this empowering action to work for peace and justice in Gaza.
Join the occupation!
