The Occupation Begins

Glasgow University students have entered into occupation. 

We are currently occupying the top floor of the Computer Science building in solidarity with the Gazan people, and in protest to the war crimes committed by the state of Israel against the Palestinian people, the University's complicity in this via links to the arms trade, and the BBC's refusal to show the DEC appeal.

If you want to join the occupation, or show your support outside, the Computer Science building is located behind the Queen Margaret Union, and opposite the Boyd Orr building.

The Demands of the Occupation will follow.

In Solidarity,

The Occupying Students of Glasgow University.


  1. I am all the way you guys...keep it up..Strathclyde and all the civilians of the world express their solidarity...

    Come gather 'round people
    Wherever you roam
    And admit that the waters
    Around you have grown
    And accept it that soon
    You'll be drenched to the bone.
    If your time to you
    Is worth savin'
    Then you better start swimmin'
    Or you'll sink like a stone
    For the times they are a-changin'.

  2. Nice one, solidarity from Oxford!

  3. Bravo to the courageous and principled Glasgow Students! The University should know that there are a great many people watching closely to ensure that the protesters are not mistreated in any way and that we are all there in spirit, standing shoulder to shoulder with is a disgrace that so many universities have links to the despicable arms trade - shame!

    Viva Palestine!

  4. Well done! Long live the struggle!

  5. This is pathetic. The disruption caused to thousands of students within the University trying to work and learn ironically demonstrates a severe lack of respect for others.

    Find a better way to put your point across.
