UNAM students start up University Campus protests over the war in Gaza

A growing global student movement to occupy university campuses has continued to coalesce and expand in recent days, following dramatic scenes involving pro-Palestinian protesters and police captured on cameras at American colleges.

Student groups in the United Kingdom, France, and Mexico — among others — have sought to erect what many of them are terming “solidarity encampments,” prompting a variety of responses from university authorities and local law enforcement.

The efforts by students to pressure institutional leaders, and in some cases national policymakers, to change their stances on Israel’s military actions reflect widespread anger among young people in wealthy and developing nations alike.

In Mexico, students from different faculties of the National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM) set up a camp in favor of Palestine and against Israel’s war in the Gaza Strip.

The university students joined the global student protests that occurred due to the war, where at least 35 thousand Palestinian people have been murdered in almost 7 months of conflict.

The university community asked the Government of Mexico to break economic, political, and academic relations with Israel.

Although the university authorities have already approached the place to talk with the students, the camp installation, located on the Rectory esplanade, will remain indefinitely.

This pro-Palestine camp at UNAM occurs while in other countries there have been university demonstrations for the same reason.
