Support SOAS student occupiers for Gaza!

SOAS students have occupied their university in solidarity with the people of Gaza, following an overwhelming vote at a packed union general meeting.

Check out their facebook group for updates. Send messages of support to

Below we share the message of support we have sent.


Dear SOAS Occupiers,

We congratulate and salute your brave stand in solidarity with the Palestinians in Gaza, who continue to face an unrelenting bombardment from one of the world’s most powerful militaries.

As Desmond Tutu once said “If you are neutral in situations of injustice, you have chosen the side of the oppressor. If an elephant has its foot on the tail of a mouse and you say that you are neutral, the mouse will not appreciate your neutrality.”

At a time when the British media is absurdly attempting to present Israel’s barbaric assault on Gaza as an equal war, in which the Palestinians are just as responsible as Israel, your actions in occupying SOAS will help shatter these lies and raise greater understanding of what is actually happening in Gaza.

We support and join your calls upon all students in Britain and the anti-war movement at large to take action in solidarity with the people of Gaza.

In solidarity and unity,

Student Broad Left
