King's Enters Second Day of Occupation

This morning we received messages of support from the An Najah National University in Palestine, and Cairo university. Manchester Trade Unions Council have sent their support and solidarity to us and all other universities in occupation.

Today's Schedule:
Lindsey German, convenor of Stop The War Coalition, will be speaking at 11 am
Neil Cafferty, from the Socialist Party (which has sister groups in Lebanon and Israel) will be speaking at 2pm
There will be a workshop entitled 'How Can We Defeat the Siege of Gaza?' at 4pm
John Rose, author of 'The Myths of Zionism', will be speaking at 5pm


  1. Solidarity, guys.

    You're doing a great job, and people are taking notice.

  2. Great job!! It is so great and humbling to see you guys doing it and so vocally too!!

    A big well done!!

  3. You are so great!

    Signs of solidarity like this will bring us a long way - I hope more people will take responsibility and act upon it, like you.

    I am sincerely humbled and inspired by your actions.

    Support from Copenhagen

  4. Dear comrades,

    I am writing to send a message of solidarity on behalf of the Branch Committee of the Lambeth Branch of UNISON.

    We salute your courage in campaigning tirelessly for the Palestinian right to education. The tide is turning against the legitimacy of the Israeli Apartheid state and the student movement is crucial to that. We support you in your occupation to bring about firm commitments to Palestinian students from your university.

    You may also be heartened to know that yesterday our Branch Committee voted to support calls for academic, cultural and economic boycotts of Israel.

    In solidarity,

    James Caspell
