Sheffield University Occupied for Gaza Why Support The Occupation not The Middle Class.

Now in its, fourth day, and it seems a weekend is looming, here at underclassrising.net we find ourself in a strange position due to fact of those involved. The Alliance for workers liberty those who created this uproar www.indymedia.org.uk are very much the involved, and while there are claims of democracy and it all been done on consensus, we all know to well from Matilda about how the dominant can simply force there view upon the rest of the group and those involved.

We have said it time again we have no time for The Middle Class, also involved are The Socialist Workers Party The Anarchist Federation, the list goes on, we do not suport the politics of the groups involved, neither do we support The Palestine Campaign we do however understand that such an occupation raises the issue of Palestine, also raise wider issue of how all university are complicit with there involvement with The Israeli State, in a week where

Tristan Anderson, a 38, an American citizen, was critically injured on Friday13 3 09 by Israeli troops during protests against Israel’s Wall in the West Bank village of Ni’lin. He was hit in his forehead by a new type of high velocity, extended range teargas projectile, and has been transferred to Tel Hashomer hospital, near Tel Aviv. Tristan is unconscious, anesthetized and artificially respirated, has sustained life-threatening injuries to his brain (as well as to his right eye), and is expected to undergo several operations in the coming days, in addition to the one he underwent today,

along with the continued occupation of Gaza and we need only read today Guardian http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/2009…ings-civilians

Striking testimony has emerged from Israeli soldiers involved in the Gaza war in which they describe shooting unarmed civilians, sometimes under orders from their officers.

One soldier described how an Israeli sniper shot dead a Palestinian mother and her two children, adding that fellow troops believed the lives of Palestinians were “very, very less important than the lives of our soldiers”.

This is why we support this occupation, and we would argue the aims and objectives of those involved are weak. For updates images on The Occupation of Sheffield goto:
