Occupation – the good kind!

Often we talk about occupation; occupation that brings misery, injury and death and restricts the freedom of millions of people. So it’s nice to be able to talk about a good occupation – that by British students on behalf of Palestine. There have been an inspiring wave of occupations across the country in protest at the cuts and rises in tuition fees but this one was in order to put pressure on St Andrews University to divest from Israel and provide scholarships for Gaza citizens (more info on http://bit.ly/dEyqrY). The (benign) occupiers suffered being cut off from food and warmth in order to win substantial concessions from the University. May this be just the beginning!
