PROTEST ABOUT ISRAEL SCIENCE DAY IN LONDON AND MANCHESTER


       Message from the British Committee for the Universities of
       Palestine (BRICUP)

With amazing and insensitive bad taste the Science Museum in London and
the Manchester Museum of Science and Industry are allowing their
premises to be used for an ‘Israel Day of Science’ sponsored by the
Zionist Federation. The research of seven Israeli universities is to be
showcased. The planned dates are March 3 (Manchester) and March 5 (London).
Event details <https://zionist.org.uk/index.php?id=39&event=120>
This cannot be allowed to happen. These universities are without
exception complicit in the mechanisms and policies of the Israeli
occupation, and in developing the military technology used in the
massacre in Gaza. Protests are rolling in from scientists and
non-scientists alike
BRICUP has drafted letters below to be sent to the Chairs of the Boards
of Trustees of the 2 museums

Read the letter that will be sent to Manchester MOSI
<http://www.bricup.org.uk/documents/MOSILetter.pdf> (similar letters to
both Museums).

Go TO THE BRICUP WEBSITE and follow the links if you want to SIGN THESE
LETTERS (www.bricup.org.uk <http://www.bricup.org.uk/>) . Unless you
specify otherwise, we will add your signature to both letters.
The deadline for signing up is 21 February 21. BRICUP will then send the
letters to the museums with a list of signatories and maximum publicity.

If the events go ahead, protests will take place at both museums.
Details will follow.
