The aim of the memorial is to visually remind students -who are busy with their heads in books, studying for exams- of the human cost of Israels' brutal attacks on Gaza over the past three weeks. Around 1300 Palestinians are thought to have been killed and 13 Israelis. More than 5000 Gazans have been injured.
At 13:48 a one minute silence was held for all those who have lost their lives in the recent escalations, both Palestinian & Israeli. Over 100 students attended the vigil. Peace poppies were given out and a collection was made, raising £200 for Medical Aid for Palestinians.
Justice is the seed,
Peace the flower.
