Palestine: The solidarity of American and European universities continues, demanding concrete measures against the Zionist occupation


Algiers – Student protests continue in many American and European universities, denouncing the Zionist aggression against the Gaza Strip and demanding that the international community take urgent and concrete measures against the occupation, stop supplying it with weapons, and boycott Zionist companies participating in the extermination of the Palestinian people.

In the United States, faculty members from Princeton University joined the students who have been on hunger strike since May 3 and in solidarity with the Gaza Strip, to go on a one-day strike.

Faculty members at Princeton University said in a statement, “Our day-long solidarity is a small effort compared to the efforts of our students (18 students) who have committed to this strike since May 3 to show their solidarity with the Palestinian people in Gaza and the West Bank, who are subjected to forced starvation and genocide from Before the Zionist entity.

The statement added: We urge the university administration to enter into negotiations in good faith with student representatives and faculty members and to consider the urgent need to stop dealing with the Zionist entity until it stops the genocidal war against the Palestinian people in Gaza.

The faculty members called for amnesty for students, faculty and staff who faced disciplinary action due to their participation in peaceful protests.

Inside Johns Hopkins University, students organized a demonstration and march, in which they raised slogans demanding an end to the Zionist aggression against Gaza and the severing of relations between their university and the Zionist entity that is waging a war of genocide and ethnic cleansing against the Palestinians.

The American police arrested more than 2,400 students in more than 50 universities, and arrested 50 professors during the American university protests that began last April 18.

In Britain, the students protesting at the University of Oxford expressed their insistence on continuing the sit-in on the university campus until their demands are met and the university’s investments in companies that support the Zionist entity are halted. The sit-in camp in Oxford received widespread support from hundreds of students, professors, and several human rights organizations.

In parallel with the university student movement, popular demonstrations took place in New York as the anniversary of the Palestinian Nakba approached, and the demonstrators demanded an end to the aggression against Gaza and an end to the Zionist occupation.

Youth and student groups of different age groups participated in the demonstrations, and the New York Police arrested about 100 people. Thousands of people in solidarity with Palestine also demonstrated today on the Manhattan Bridge in New York City.

The cities of Seattle, Washington State, St. Louis State, Missouri, and Brooklyn, New York State, witnessed demonstrations demanding a permanent ceasefire in Gaza, a ban on all American military aid directed to the Zionist entity, and the cessation of any cooperation with it.

In Sweden, thousands of protesters came out in the city of Malmö to demand a boycott of Zionist participation in the Eurovision singing festival.

The demonstrators chanted slogans of solidarity with the residents of Gaza and condemned European double standards. Demonstrators in France demanded an end to the ongoing Zionist war of genocide in the Gaza Strip, and during a march that took place in a number of streets in Paris, they raised slogans calling for an immediate ceasefire, lifting the siege on Gaza, and opening the crossings to bring in humanitarian and medical aid.

The German capital, Berlin, witnessed a demonstration in support of the Palestinian cause, called by the “Unified Palestinian National Committee,” in which various groups of German activists and activists in solidarity with Palestine participated.

The demonstrators demanded that the German government ban the export of weapons to the occupation and suspend previously approved shipments.

In Spain, thousands of demonstrators went out in the capital, Madrid, and gathered in the center of Madrid in response to a call from civil society organizations. They carried Palestinian flags in their hands, denouncing the Zionist entity and accusing the United States and the European Union of cooperating with the occupier in its aggression against the Gaza Strip.

The demonstrators raised banners reading such as, “This is not a war, it is genocide,” and “Free Palestine,” chanting slogans such as, “No to genocide in Gaza, no to occupation in Palestine, no to apartheid, no to ethnic cleansing, and no to settler colonialism.”
