A request to all our supporters...

Just a quick plea to all of you who are in support of our occupation and following our blog to email our acting vice chancellor stating that you unconditionally support our demands and our occupation!

This will be extremely helpful to us, particuarly as we are meeting with the vice chancellors group on Tuesday morning and have to have support from them over our demands.

Our vice chancellor Professor Susan Price can be contacted at and her phone number is 020 822 34159.

Any pressure we can place on them will help us win success on each of our demands.
Please be polite in your emails. It doesn't have to be long - just a clear message that you admire our actions, and believe that the University should meet our demands - and be proud to do so, as so many institutions did in reponse to white South African Apartheid.

Once institutions start taking a political stance in regard to Israeli war crimes and their continued occupation of the Palestinian Territories governments will be forced to re-address their support for the racist and oppressive government of Israel. It is this that will make a real difference to the lives of Palestinians - more so than financial support in many ways. The political situation needs to change and the student occupations in recent weeks have represented the shift in public opinion with regards to Israel's brutal history of supressing Palestinians.

The government of Israel cannot continue to persecute Palestinians for a crime they didn't commit. The holocaust cannot be used to justify and legitimise their oppression of others.

Thank you for all your help, it really does make a difference.

In Solidarity with all of us who strive to make a difference to the injustices in this world.
