In a qualitative step forward for the Palestine Solidarity movement in the UK seventeen universities have been occupied by students. This has now been extended to occupations of media outlets, the BBC HQ in Scotland being the first (apart from an occupation of a pro-zionist news lobby offices several weeks ago). They are demanding that the BBC air the Disasters Emergency Committee adverts to raise funds for the humanitarian crisis in Gaza caused by Israeli years of blockade and barbaric war. We wish the greatest solidarity to those involved, hoping that their actions will spread further.
