SIXTEEN BRITISH UNIVERSITIES OCCUPIED IN SOLIDARITY WITH GAZA: Three Thousand Cheers for Student Protest!

WONDERFUL NEWS continues to spread. Students across the U.K. are occupying universities in solidarity with the people of Gaza and in protest against Israel’s war and its war crimes. These students are making history, and the near simultaneous wave of occupations, with the number of universities occupied doubling in number over one night (from 8 to 16), puts to rest any notions of self-absorbed, self-seeking students who have no concern to become active in changing the world. For that: 3,000 cheers!
