Justice For Palestine – Free Gaza! Student Conference this Saturday

October 28, 2009

Saturday 31st October 2009, 10.30am – 5.30pm, University of London Union

Israel’s brutal and indiscriminate massacre on Gaza earlier this year outraged an entire generation. Prompting a massive surge in student activism, including a wave of university occupations – we demanded action to support Palestinian students, whose education had been decimated by Israel’s aggression.

As the inhumane blockade on Gaza intensifies depriving Palestinians of the most basic human rights, and as Israel continues to flout international law with the construction of more settlements, displacing many Palestinian families from their homes, our continuing solidarity has never been more urgent.

The Palestine Solidarity Campaign’s Student Conference will be a brilliant opportunity for students from across the country to meet and discuss what can be done to support peace and justice for Palestine.
