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
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.
