Update on Negotiations
Since the University refused to talk to us, we proposed that they state their response in writing. Their letter was merely a restatement of existing University policy and asked us to stop the occupation by midnight. Instead of offering opportunities for negotiation, it simply made threats. We found this particularly shocking in light of the relative pro-activity displayed by other universities in response to similar demands. We still believe that the University can take concrete steps to support the people of Gaza, and continue to offer them the opportunity of a detailed discussion, between four of our representatives and four of theirs (or any number that they wish), in an open forum witnessed by all who wish to join.
