Students in West Demand End to Conflict in Gaza

Thousands of pro-Palestinian students once again demonstrated at several universities in the United States, Germany, the United Kingdom, France, and Cuba, calling for an end to Israeli attacks on the Gaza Strip.

Protesters described Israel's attacks on Gaza as genocide and criminal, and asked their universities to sever all ties with Israeli universities.

“We consider it inexcusable to wake up one more day knowing about the genocide that is taking place today in Gaza, knowing that children, young people, the elderly are continuing to die, knowing that ... today I'm here at the university, and tomorrow I'll still be here, but I don't know what my colleagues in Gaza are going to do, what my colleagues in the United States who are demonstrating against the genocide, against the exploitation that the Palestinian people are suffering, are going to do,” said Jose Alberto Almrida, a protester in Cuba.

Sarah Almushabi, another protester in Cuba, said: “U.S. students right now will be energized, and they are energized, seeing solidarity from people all over the world. And we realize that we are all in this together.”

Sharaf Huwwari, a protester in Cuba, said: "To show support for students at universities in the United States, to show that students all over the world are together, united, in the face of the forces of the United States and Israel."

Protesters also clashed with the police.

Police beat, arrested, and imprisoned many protesters.

Noe Grenier, a protester in France, said: "We want to ask university representatives to have a clear position on the massacre currently happening in Palestine. Because we are confronted with the fact that, as soon as you support Palestine, you are dubbed an anti-Semite, when all we want is for the Palestinian people to be able to live and not to turn a blind eye to the 34,000 deaths in Gaza."

These protests have been warmly welcomed by the residents of the Gaza Strip.

"My message for the American students is that we are extremely proud and their protests and solidarity with Palestine and with Gaza gave us a glimpse of hope and they didn't leave us alone and they didn’t leave us feeling helpless,” said Nawar Diab, a Palestinian student.

Renad Annan, another resident of the Gaza Strip, said: " It's a very huge effort that helped Gaza students, that made us feel that we are powerful, that we are not alone, that people around the world feel what we are going through, feel that we have lost everything."

These protests are taking place at universities in several Western countries, as since the start of the battles in the Gaza Strip, more than 34,000 Palestinians have been killed and nearly 78,000 others have been injured.
