Students’ Union UCL Sabbatical Officers are appalled by the violence in Israel and Occupied Palestinian Territories. There is a clear asymmetry of power, which has resulted in a horrifying and disproportionate impact on Palestinian citizens. 

We are committed to social justice - calling out oppression when we see it, and central to this is ensuring we educate ourselves on how to ally with our Palestinian students. These events are not happening in a vacuum. Rather, they take place against a backdrop of continued illegal occupation and internationally recognised apartheid. In addition, there have been reports of rising antisemitic hate crime in the UK during the last week, this is abhorrent and unacceptable. Our priority remains to ensure our campus is safe for all students. If you have experienced bullying, harassment or racism of any kind use the UCL Report + Support tool to report it anonymously.

We know that many of our students are currently in Israel and Occupied Palestinian Territories, or have family there, and so are directly affected by these events. To those students, we are here for you. We encourage you to meet with our independent and impartial Advice Service, please use the links below for further support.
