    Bradford Uni Occupied!!!

    In the light of a lack of action on behalf of the University of Bradford following the union general meeting of Thursday 22nd, we the students, have issued a renewed set of demands concerning the conflict in Israel/Palestine:

    The University of Bradford must:

    1. Issue a statement condemning the violence caused by the Israeli occupation of Palestine, and calling for the siege to be lifted on all sides.
    2. Twin with the Islamic University of Gaza and erect a plaque to this effect.
    3. Treat Palestinian students as home students and therefore charge them home fees.
    4. Refuse to stock or contract with companies who support the Israeli occupation. This includes Nestle, Coca Cola, Walkers and Evian.
    5. Pressure Lloyds banking group to act as a clearing bank for Interpal, or agree to transfer its custom to a more ethical bank.
    6. Provide full financial transparency, and disinvest from any and all companies who support the Israeli occupation.
    7. Support actions taking place on campus making people aware of the issues, with no repercussions for any participants.
    8. Pressure the government to support an inquiry on whether Israel is responsible for committing war crimes.
