I hereby support the demands of SOAS4GAZA:
1. The SOAS student union should cultivate an academic partnership with the student union of Al’Asqua University in Palestine.
2. Additional postgraduate scholarships should be created for Palestinian students wishing to study at SOAS.
3. No staff or students are to be persecuted for their involvement in organising or support for the SOAS occupation that ended on November 22nd 2012.
It remains imperative that all students who wish to see the above demands met meaningfully by management maintain their support and sign our online petition. Continued unity and application of the kind of pressure which could only have been generated by an occupation will be essential in the coming days and weeks to ensure the symbolic stand made by occupy activists leads to real victories in terms of what we can do for the people of Gaza.
