University students demand action on Gaza conflict in Copenhagen meeting

Today, a major meeting is being held at the University of Copenhagen, organized by the movement Students Against Occupation. The meeting, taking place at 3:30 pm, is part of a larger action where students demand that the university takes a clear stance on the conflict in Gaza. The movement, which began their protest by setting up a tent camp on the university campus yesterday, has outlined a series of demands to the university leadership. These include full financial transparency regarding the university’s investments in companies with connections to Israel, as well as a cessation of institutional cooperation with Israeli academic institutions. “We stand united with students and staff from other Danish universities, who also demand that their universities take responsibility and action,” the movement stated in a leaflet distributed earlier today. The University of Copenhagen has officially stated that they welcome the debate, but have also declined to actively participate in the conflict. This has not diminished the movement’s determination, and they plan to continue their presence at the university until their demands are met. Today’s major meeting is expected to attract significant attention, both from students and the media, and is part of a broader movement seeking to mobilize support for the Palestinian people.
