Students for Palestine started Gaza solidarity encampment

Gaza solidarity encampments have spread to university campuses in Melbourne, Sydney, Canberra and Brisbane, inspired by the movement on university campuses in the US and the camp at Columbia University.

The students are demanding Sydney University cut ties with weapons manufacturers and cut ties with Israeli universities, as well as calling on NSW Premier Chris Minns to drop charges against pro-Palestine protesters and scrap the anti-protest laws.

Sydney Uni has partnerships with weapons companies including Safran, Thales and Lockheed Martin, which all produce weapons Israel is using in its genocide in Gaza.

It also continues to maintain exchange partnerships with the Israeli University of Technology, the Hebrew University of Jerusalem and Tel Aviv University, which all have deep links with the Israeli Defence Forces and Israeli weapons companies.
