Well a little bit of googling told me what I thought already and that is that Al Quds and Goldsmiths have been twinned for some years now but there is some kind of occupation going on at Goldsmiths:
Students of Goldsmiths University have, as of this afternoon, occupied a campus building. At noon today students stormed Deptford town hall, which is known amongst students as the administration hub of the college.So Al Quds and Goldsmiths are twinned and there are students trying to get scholarships for two students from Gaza. So what's to oppose here if you support academic freedom?
In accordance with the recent wave of student occupations, the Goldsmiths students are acting in solidarity with the people of Palestine, following the atrocities that have taken place in Gaza.
The Goldsmiths students have just one specific aim: Two MA Scholarships Programs for students of the Palestinian Al Quds Open University, the Palestinian University which the college is linked.
I'm so confused about this whole thing about the UCU resolution any clarification, even from Engage would be welcome.
UPDATE - this is isn't really an update because I haven't even posted the post yet but it seems that the students won their demands according to this insider blog.
But re the resolution on Thursday, what was it exactly and what was it that Dr Hirsh opposed?
