One way to help our occupation

Dear supporter,
One way in which you can help the occupation realise its demands is to continue the pressure on the University’s intransigent Vice-Chancellor Alan Gilbert. Please send your messages to him at president@manchester.ac.uk, and CC them to us at supporttheoccupation@googlemail.com. Feel free to use the model letter below, or to compose your own (but please bear in mind, abusive messages will not help the cause).
In solidarity,
Manchester Students in Occupation

Professor Gilbert,
I am writing in solidarity with the students currently occupying spaces within Manchester University.
Universities around the country have responded constructively to student demands, and taken concrete measures to help their colleagues in the Gaza strip. I trust that Manchester will not be the exception to this rule, and that the University will not interfere with these peaceful and overwhelming positive actions.
To remain silent in the face of oppression is to side with the oppressor. It would be unthinkable for the University to ignore the pleas of the people of Gaza, or to reject the growing demands for solidarity from the student body and civil society. I hereby call on the University to answer the demands of the students in occupation.
We are thousands, we are millions. We are all Palestinians.
Yours,

    Having met one of your comrades by chance yesterday, he inspired me to write an article in support of your cause. It can be found at the address below, I hope all of the facts are accurate…

    Just to wish you the best of luck with your occupation, it is truly admirable.
