There were over 30 university occupations by students from January to March of this year, expressing solidarity with the people of Gaza. Student activists assembled in London on Saturday, for a conference organised by the Stop the War Coalition, to plan how to take things forward this autumn. Palestine remains important, judging from the speeches recorded here by Ady Cousins (who runs the Counter Fire website), but Afghanistan and Islamophobia are also prominent for anti-war students. The national demonstration on 24 October - demanding an end to the occupation of Afghanistan - is particularly important.
