Support the Gaza AGM sign now

We are collecting signatures from all those who wish to have an ethical investment policy at Strathclyde University that does not directly nor indirectly participate in the killing of others.

We wish to defend the democratic wish of the student AGM which banned arms corporations from our student buildings and supported the gains of the student sit-in that secured Palestinian scholarships, and the advertisement of the DEC aid appeal.

OUR EDUCATION SHOULD NOT BE TO THE DETRIMENT OF OTHERS

After a 24 hour occupation of Registry; three negotiation sessions with the university authorities and a students' association that opposed the actions, we managed to win a series of promises from the University administration:

- The Eden Springs contract has been CANCELLED
- Scholarships will be provided for 1-3 (and potentially more) Palestinian students
- The DEC appeal will be publicised on campus and on the University homepage
- The University will re-establish its link with the University of Gaza


Following from this we passed a motion at the Students Union AGM, where for the first time in 12 years quorum was reached, stating:

- That the AGM believe's that the occupation of Gaza is unlawful, as is the commercial exploitation of the conflict by any company.
- That by building ties with companies such as Eden Springs and BAe, the University and it's students are complicit in the occupation of Gaza
- And that none of the activites by the students and/or university staff must contribute, directly or indirectly, to the occupation of Gaza and it's commercial exploitation.
