Students organise against Israel's war

January 18, 2009

Activists from the National Union of Students, University of Western Sydney, University of NSW, University of Technology, Ultimo TAFE and University of Sydney have established a cross-campus collective to oppose Israel's attack on Gaza.

The first meeting of the new Cross-Campus Gaza Defence Committee adopted a motion that: "opposes Israel's aggression towards the Palestinian people; calls for an Israeli ceasefire, immediately and unconditionally; calls for Israel to lift the blockade of Gaza's borders and end the humanitarian crisis; condemns the Australian Labor government for supporting Israel's war on Gaza; and offers its solidarity to those in Palestine suffering from Israel's bombing, and to students in Australia affected by Israel's war".

The committee is holding a "mass shoe throwing" at 12noon on January 21, near Fisher Library at Sydney University. Students are encouraged to join the email group by sending a blank email to: < cross-A HREF=""><>.
