Following the eviction of peaceful protestors from Sheffield Hallam University by the police on Thursday 29th January, the Hallam Free Gaza Movement, supported by the Stop the War Coalition and the Palestine Solidarity Campaign, is holding a public meeting on Wednesday 4th February, 7pm at Quaker Meeting House, St James Street. The speakers will be Stuart Halforty and Maxine Bowler from the Stop the War Coalition. The meeting will discuss the current situation in Gaza and the national wave of student occupations in response to Israel's actions. It will also be discussing the current victimization of student campaigners at Sheffield Hallam University including the suspension of students for leafletting about Gaza and the refusal of university management to allow the Free Gaza Movement to hold meetings on campus.
