Not what we are asking for AT ALL! Strange isn't it, that Palestine isn't mentioned.
WHAT WE ARE DEMANDING: 2 MA scholarships for students of Al-Quds Open University in Nablus, as well as spaces in halls of residence. The SU/Palestine Twinning Campaign has made it clear that we will be responsible for their airfare, whilst Al-Quds Open University/the students themselves will bear the cost of living expenses.
We are not leaving until our demands are met.
The occupying students have been peaceful and their interaction with the staff has been cordial.
The students entered the building at noon today and intend to remain day and night until their demands have been met. Until that time they will be organizing film screenings, social events and talks regarding the Israeli Occupation of Palestine and other political issues.
The granting of these scholarships is determined by Goldsmiths Senior Management Team which operates from Deptford Town Hall.
The space is open to all who choose to participate. Deptford Town Hall’s security staff is allowing people to enter and exit the building freely.
This action has been taken in support of a nationwide wave of twenty-seven student-led university occupations in response to the recent twenty-two day assault on Gaza. Goldsmiths’ SU began the campaign for scholarships in 2006.
To show your support for the granting of these MA scholarships, contact Warden Geoffrey Crossick at firstname.lastname@example.org.
