After a great Israeli Apartheid Week, the Sussex Friends of Palestine group is going in to an important stage of its campaign to pressure the university to divest from companies that profit from Israel’s oppression of Palestinians.
Israel is occupying and colonising Palestinian land, discriminating against Palestinian citizens of Israel and denying Palestinian refugees the right to return to their homes.
On Tuesday, we’ll be handing in an open letter to the university asking for the university to commit to not investing any of its money in companies like HP and Caterpillar that profit Israel’s oppression of Palestinians.
It’d be great if you could help out and get involved by doing the following:
1. Make sure you’ve signed the open letter
We’d like as many people as possible to sign the open letter before we hand it in. If you haven’t signed it already, please sign our open letter now.
2. Ask your friends to sign the open letter
Please share the open letter on social media. The link to share is: https://sussexdivestforpalestine.tumblr.com/letter.
3. Come to our open letter hand in action on Tuesday
On this day we will be delivering our open letter to university management and showing that all of us, students, alumni, academics and university staff are united in calling for divestment for Palestine. We’ll be meeting from 11am at Library Square. More info here: https://www.facebook.com/events/194931787664534/
Please get involved if you can, thanks so much!
