Pro-Palestinian encampment launched at Queen Mary University of London

14 May 2024 - 18:35

One student, Mehair, said the encampment was launched as part of the global student movement.

Mehair said that while there are no universities left standing in Gaza, their university still has ties with Israeli universities.
“We are not happy with the complicity, with the way that our staff have dealt with things…We’ve decided that enough is enough.”
​​​​​​ “We’re all taking comfort in the fact that we know that we’re doing the right thing regardless. So even if we are penalised, there is still honour in standing up for what’s right,” she added.
Israel has killed at least 35,173 Palestinians and wounded 79,061 in Gaza since 7 October, while destroying the majority of the Strip’s infrastructure.
It is accused of genocide at the International Court of Justice. An interim ruling in January said it is “plausible” that Israel is committing genocide in Gaza and ordered Tel Aviv to stop such acts and take measures to guarantee that humanitarian assistance is provided to civilians in the enclave.
