Solidarity With The Occupation

No, not that one. Well, yes, obviously that one too.

But I meant this one, which is also an occupation, although not quite in the same way, and it is related to the other occupation, so I can see how you may have got confused.

Let me start over.

A coalition of about 25 Left students at Newcastle University have been occupying the Fine Arts lecture theatre since last night, demanding that the university support the Palestinians, divest its investments in the arms trade, boycott Israeli academics and goods, and raise awareness of the Palestinian cause, amongst other things. Send them a message of support, or simply visit the blog. There have been reports of violence being used on them by University security staff so you might want to complain about that too.
