Universal Credit change affecting 180,000 people has come into effect today

Greta Thunberg has joined a Palestine protest at Stockholm University as she slams the institution for "failing to cut ties" with "the genocidal, apartheid state of Israel".

The climate activist has joined forces with other students to occupy the university as they call for a ceasefire in Gaza.


It comes after Thunberg was spotted at a pro-Palestine protest in Sweden ahead of the second semi-final of this year's Eurovision Song Contest.

Thousands of campaigners gathered in the southern Swedish city of Malmo on Thursday to protest against the Israeli military campaign in Gaza.



Palestinian flags and tents have been erected outside Stockholm University as campaigners "join the global student uprisings".

Writing on social media, Thunberg said: "We are currently at Stockholm University, who have failed to cut ties with Israeli academia and not even published a statement in solidarity with Gaza and the Palestinian people.

"The Israeli military are actively targeting and bombing Palestinian universities and institutions of higher education, as well as the basic societal infrastructure. There is no safe place in Gaza.

"We demand that the Stockholm University administration cut all ties, agreements and collaborations with the genocidal, apartheid state of Israel, be they university-wide or brokered by individual institutions at Stockholm University."

She added: "We cannot be neutral or silent in a genocide. Refusing to take a stance is in itself a political stance."

The protest mirrors those carried out in Oxford and Cambridge where camps have been set up on university lawns.

Students at the universities have dubbed their camps "Liberated Zones"similar to the now-infamous camp at Columbia University which was stormed by riot police.

A list of demands from protesters was sent to both universities and included calls for them to divest assets from Israel, cut ties with Israeli academic institutions and fund Palestinian scholars.



Organisers of the Cambridge camp say they will stay "as long as it takes for our demands to be met".

Jewish students at Cambridge have called for the university to take action after they say that the camp "leaves many of us on edge".

A Cambridge University spokesman said: "The University is fully committed to academic freedom and freedom of speech within the law and we acknowledge the right to protest.

"We ask everyone in our community to treat each other with understanding and empathy."
