In Solidarity with Palestine

Israel-Palestine Humanitarian Crisis Statement:

Our students condemn the oppression and violence towards Palestinians by the Israeli government and military in the continuing historical Israel-Palestine conflict and occupation of land. We call for an immediate and permanent ceasefire in Israel and Palestine. Our students also condemn the terrorist attack in Israel on October the 7th and call for the release of all hostages taken on that day.

Our students and academic staff have witnessed complete silence and a lack of direct engagement in condemning the violence, including the vast civilian death toll; encompassing cultural, academic and healthcare infrastructures and peoples. This silence has only increased tensions on campus.

We want to break this silence and bring the community together to learn more about the conflict, join campaigning and fundraising for the Palestinian struggle, and promote opportunities for open conversations.

We condemn and want to tackle racism, islamophobia and antisemitism on campus, which are increasingly becoming a safety concern for our students. We have zero tolerance for hate speech and discrimination. 

Get involved in the solidarity campaign led by our students.
