SUPPORT THE MANCHESTER DEMO TOMORROW

A demonstration has been called to demand that the chancellor of the University of Manchester listens to its students in occupation in solidarity with the people of Gaza.

Manchester University students have now been in occupation for for over 3 weeks, the longest running student occupation in solidarity with Gaza. The occupied room in the Simon Building in the heart of the student campus has been a haven of productivity. Meetings have attracted over a thousand people, rallies and vigils organised, banners and placards made, radio interviews and visits from university staff, students and security showing their support for the occupation. The occupation has been innundated with support from Noam Chomsky to Israeli lecturers. Through the occupation other protests have been ignited including the 'removal' of DTSL (arms trade researcher) recruitment stall.

The students have now organised a National Demonstration to demand the Manchester University Vice-Chancellor listens to its students and meet their honourable demands.

SUPPORT THE MANCHESER DEMONSTRATION TOMORROW (WED 4TH MARCH).

ASSEMBLE 2PM MANCHESTER STUDENTS UNION, OXFORD RD.

Sheffield activists shall be meeting at Sheffield train station at 10am to travel to the demonstration.

See you there!

  1. According to respected international lawyer Franklin Lamb a recent CIA report gives the Israeli state 20 years before it collapses. Apparently members of the US Senate Intelligence Committee have seen the report which argues that a two-state solution is no longer realistic and that a one-state solution is the only viable democratic option. It predicts:

    "an inexorable movement away from a two-state to a one-state solution, as the most viable model based on democratic principles of full equality that sheds the looming specter of colonial Apartheid while allowing for the return of the 1947/1948 and 1967 refugees. The latter being the precondition for sustainable peace in the region."
