Sit-In At Warwick in Solidarity with Gaza

Concerned Citizens | 21.01.2009 14:47 | University Occupations for Gaza | Birmingham

Warwick University students have claimed a space on campus as an act in solidarity with the innocent victims in Gaza, and with the other groups in the UK which have taken similar action.

We call on our University to suspend dealings with businesses which support Israel's illegal occupation, such as BAE systems, and to support our fellow students in Palestine who are being denied their right to education.

There will be talks, films, workshops, debates and anything else we can arrange. The occupation of the space will continue until those who are involved decide to end it, and the activities which take place will reflect the wishes of the group. 

Other universities in the country, including Birmingham, Essex, SOAS, LSE, Sussex and Kings have already seen occupations. Others are planned and will start at any moment. This is an issue which extends far beyond the borders of Warwick, and this occupation and sit-in is undertaken as part of the wider movement. Join us!

Our Demands

1.Warwick University should suspend all relations with arms companies which supply Israel. This includes BAE Systems and Qinetiq.
2.That the University donate old computer equipment and textbooks to universities in Palestine, specifically those that were partially destroyed in Gaza during the current Israeli military operation.
3.That the University fund and provide logistical support for a series of talks on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
