Student occupations against Israeli occupation

There are student occupations all over the UK in protest about their universities complicity with Israel’s wars. This is a wonderful development, and shows the way for future actions. For information about the occupations, check out this website: http://sussexoccupation.blogspot.com/

The great thing about these occupations is that they’re winning. Sometimes all they are getting is the university agreeing to provide charity to Gaza, sometimes establish links with Palestinian universities, and take in students. Other times, they’re managing to get their central plank - divestment from Israel - considered, and hopefully soon it will be adopted.
