Students at UC Santa Cruz Launch Gaza Solidarity Encampment

by Occupy 4 Palestine
On May 1, students at UC Santa Cruz launched a Gaza Solidarity encampment at Quarry Plaza. Students for Justice in Palestine at UCSC have posted to social media a set of demands, as well as a list of their immediate needs (see photos).

Students for Justice in Palestine at UC Santa Cruz posted the following announcement on social media on May 1, after the establishment of the encampment:

UCSC GAZA SOLIDARITY ENCAMPMENT & PEOPLES UNIVERSITY FOR GAZA LAUNCHES

JOIN US! WE WILL NOT STOP UNTIL OUR DEMANDS ARE MET!

As we enter over 200 days of genocide where over 30,000 lives in Gaza have been lost and millions have been displaced by the zionist occupation funded by our U.S. tax dollars and our UC tuition, we see the crucial need for students to escalate in our tactics to end the genocide against Gaza and the occupation of Palestine as a whole.

The purpose of our encampment is to recenter and refocus our attention to the genocide in Gaza and the ongoing occupation of Palestine as a whole.

We are centering the call for total liberation and freedom of the Palestinian people. We have a responsibility as people living in the U.S. and as UC students whose tuition is invested into the creation of the very missiles and weapons that are killing Palestinians at this very moment.

Nothing is normal during a genocide and we refuse to continue carrying on as if it is. Our demands have been ignored. We will continue to escalate until they are met.

Thank you for the detailed report. At least you don't former homeland seKurity director Napolitano on you, like the last time they put up tents in protest. Dr. Paul Lee (R.I.P.) donated a large tent, and would no doubt support you today, as would Keith and his friends at Food Not Bombs.

We went through some struggles deciding how to continue with Indyradio, but since we do get good search engine results we will at least cover this to the fullest extent we can on our blog.

We hope we can get some video or sound, but are not in town.

In Solidarity,

Indyradio
We are 100% volunteer and depend on your participation to sustain our efforts!
