Message of solidarity to the students of SOAS, LSE, Essex and Kings College universities

Dear comrades,

I am writing to send a message of solidarity on behalf of the Branch Committee of the Lambeth Branch of UNISON.

We salute your courage in campaigning tirelessly for the Palestinian right to education. The tide is turning against the legitimacy of the Israeli Apartheid state and the student movement is crucial to that. We support you in your occupations to bring about firm commitments to Palestinian students from your universities.

You may also be heartened to know that this morning our Branch Committee voted to support calls for academic, cultural and economic boycotts of Israel.

In solidarity,

James Caspell
Lambeth UNISON Young Members' Officer
