As of 9pm last night the lower levels of this building have been under occupation as part of a national protest movement against the situation in Gaza.
Along with students in 15 other universities around the country, the occupiers are calling upon the university to denounce Israel's actions in Gaza, offer scholarships to Palestinian students, and send academic supplies to the destroyed and damaged universities in Palestine. Already, at LSE, SOAS, Oxford and Essex, some or all of these demands have been met.
It is not our intention to disrupt the academic lives of ordinary law students, or to prevent staff from doing their jobs. We chose this building solely for practical reasons, not because we have anything against the Law faculty.
If at any point the Faculty library is closed or has access restricted this will be a decision made by the Faculty or University, NOT the occupiers. We apologise for any inconveniences caused to staff or students, and urge you to join our protest.
