Tweet Sheet for 29th November

 

November 29th is the UN International Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian People. On this day students up and down the country are taking action to demand that their institutions take action to:

1) remove investments from companies complicit in the oppression of Palestinians, or
2) cut ties with Israeli academic institutions. On the day, we’re calling a twitter storm from 12pm-2pm. Use the hashtags #ApartheidOffCampus and #DivestforPalestine  to support students taking action.

REMEMBER: Keep an eye on what’s happening on the #ApartheidOffCampus hashtag on the day. RT photos and reports from actions to help spread the word

Example tweets:

UK Universities must end their complicity with Israel’s grave human rights violations against the Palestinian people.

On the UN Day of Solidarity with Palestine let’s get #ApartheidOffCampus!

I’m an alumni of @institution. I won’t donate any money until they remove their funds that are invested in companies that profit from Israel’s ongoing oppression of the Palestinian people. #ApartheidOffCampus #DivestforPalestine

UK universities can not claim to be “socially responsible” while aiding and abetting Israel’s apartheid regime. I demand #ApartheidOffCampus #DivestforPalestine

OR

UK universities remain deeply complicit with Israel’s apartheid regime through their investment and institutional links, despite many holding “social responsibility policies”. The hypocrisy must end. #ApartheidOffCampus #DivestforPalestine

OR

I’m calling on @institution to #DivestforPalestine. Palestinians have been enduring an apartheid regime and our university should have no part to play in Palestinian oppression. Time for #ApartheidOffCampus

OR

In response to the call from the Palestinian civil society in 2005 for the international community to Boycott, Divest and Sanction (BDS), I’m calling for @institution to get #ApartheidOffCampus and #DivestforPalestine

OR

The Palestinian village of Khan Al-Ahmar is due to be demolished by Israel, to build the expanding illegal Israeli settlements. This is an example of Israel’s apartheid regime and ethnic cleansing. @institution needs to get #ApartheidOffCampus and #DivestforPalestine

OR

UK universities continue to profit from the Gaza blockade, illegal occupation and Israel’s apartheid regime. We cannot allow this happen a moment longer. Today, we’re taking action to demand #ApartheidOffCampus . Time to #DivestforPalestine
