Strathclyde Occupation


Strathclyde University Occupied

Students In The McCance BuildingStudents at glasgows Strathclyde University have occupied part of the administration building at their university. They demand,amongst other things, that the university disinvest in companies that profit from Israeli aggression and occupation of Palestinian land and that the university funds scholarships for Palestinians who have had their universities destroyed in the horror of December/January.

This is an inspiring move from a student population who have been all too apathetic and self involved in recent years. The students all over the UK who have occupied their places of education deserve our support and our applause for taking a stand.

There will be a demonstration in solidarity with the students outside the occupied building at 11:00 am today.

The full statement from the students is below. Continue reading

Whereas the reality is closer to the story of David and Goliath. Were Goliath armed with fighter jets and tanks.

There will be a demonstration in solidarity with the people of Gaza starting at 12:30 this Saturday leaving from Blythswood Sq.

Below we reprint a message from Ewa Jasiewicz an anarchist currently in the Gaza strip. Continue reading
