The following is the original message circulating the now close-knit community of previously & currently occupied universities:
"Week of action in solidarity with the arrested students of Jayyous
2nd- 9th March
On February 18th 2009 in the early hours of the morning, Occupation forces rampaged through the West Bank village of Jayyous conducting violent house to house raids and carrying out mass arrests totalling over 50 students and nearly the entire youth committee of Stop the Wall Campaign.
For months the youth movement in Jayyous had made it one of the most active villages in the West Bank , embodying a strained resistance against occupation and the wall which will carve through village land destroying hundreds of olive trees and cutting the village off from many of its primary water supplies.
The students of Jayyous have called for IMMEDIATE BOYCOTT AND DIVESTMENT action in response to the incursion.
It is crucial that we recognise the severity of this event and draw wider attention to it as an example of the crimes on humanity that Palestinians experience every day."
The Plymouth students formed a chain outside the shop, inconveniencing shoppers. They were watched closely by shop security from the safety of the shop windows, but were never asked to leave.
"We're speaking with our bodies" said one student "and we'll continue to do so until Palestine is free."
