Photos: Student encampment sets up at University of Queensland

May 1, 2024

Hundreds of students and supporters launched an encampment at the University of Queensland (UQ) on April 29.

They did this to show their support for the student encampments in the United States, to push for an end to Israel's genocide and to press UQ to end its collaboration with weapons companies on campus.

After rallying, speakers and students marched on the Boeing Centre at UQ.
