Reports round-up: Clampdown on Palestine solidarity meeting at Cambridge University

Issue No. 2580

Students and academics at Cambridge University were outraged last Wednesday after the university management intervened against a Palestine solidarity meeting.

Academics from Cambridge and Warwick universities and Soas University of London signed an open letter protesting against management’s actions.
