New York University occupied

Students at NYU have occupied their campus in solidarity with student occupations around the world and have issued a list of demands, covering union issues, student problems, solidarity with Gaza, and the activities of the university itself. Their demands were issued alongside this solidarity statement:

We, the students of Take Back NYU! declare our solidarity with the student occupations in Greece, Italy, and the United Kingdom, as well as those of the University of Rochester, the New School for Social Research, and with future occupations to come in the name of democracy and student power. We stand in solidarity with the University of Gaza, and with the people of Palestine.

Last night a solidarity demonstration resulted in clashes with the police as the occupation continued to grow in numbers. For more updates visit http://www.takebacknyu.org
