I have just received this email from Johnny Darlington, a lecturer at SOAS and a leading light of its UCU branch.

As of tuesday 13th January, the Brunei gallery suite is under occupation. Our aims are to raise awareness of and uphold motions passed by the SOAS Student’s Union on:

1) The illegal occupation of Palestinian land by Israel

2) The racist exhibition currently in the Brunei gallery hosted by the Ministry of Defence.

3) The privatisation of university space.

This occupied space will be open to the public.

We aim to complete our aims by:

1) organising a series of lectures, speakers , workshops and events on all of the three issues

2) Re-arranging the exhibition to include the history that the MoD has deliberately manipulated and hidden

3) Communicating with the media and other interested parties about our intentions.

No damage will be done to any of the space.

A full press release will be issued soon.

For further infomation, suggestions and contributions please contact [email protected]

In solidarity with the Gazans we thank you for your understanding.

Long live Palestine

But while Johnny Darlington is occupying one part of SOAS, he’s not in his rooms, at F206/F105 in the Faber Building.

At this very moment, I have been informed some other students have broken into Johnny Darlington’s room.

Occupy Johnny Darlington’s Room Now!

Our aims are:

To raise awareness of:

1) The illegal attacks by Hamas on Israeli civilians

2) The racist nature of the British Muslim Initiative/Hamas/Muslim Brotherhood, and their supporters on the extreme Left and Right

3) The illegal privatisation of SOAS property by Johnny Darlington and his mates

4) The illegal boycott of Colin Shindler’s public lecture series by SOAS Students’ Union and activists within the UCU

This occupied space will be open to the public.

We aim to complete our aims by:

1) organising a series of lectures, speakers , workshops and events on all of the four issues

2) Re-arranging Johnny Darlington’s bookshelf to include some history books and works of political theory not written by totalitarians.

3) Communicating with the media and other interested parties about our intentions.

No damage will be done to any of the space.

¡No Pasarán!

Get on down there!
