Statement Of Solidarity With The People Of Iraq, Afghanistan, And Palestine

Thursday, December 18, 2008

Members of the New School University occupying 65 Fifth Ave, New York, NY, USA, stand in solidarity with the people in Iraq, Afghanistan, and Palestine. We stand in direct opposition to the wars and occupations perpetrated by the U.S. government, private military contractors, and their proxy forces. As members of New School University, we actively oppose the war-profiteer, L-3 Communications, Robert B. Millard, the treasurer of our board of trustees. We demand he be removed from his position at our university and that colleges and universities across the U.S. divest from any and all war-profiteers as part of the process of ending these occupations. We demand an immediate withdrawal of U.S. forces from Iraq and Afghanistan. We oppose Israel's occupation of Palestine and demand its immediate end. We call upon colleges and universities from across the U.S. to divest from any corporation providing military equipment to Israel as well.
