Nijmegen Encampment

At many universities around the globe students protest against the collaboration of their uni with Israel. At the Radboud university in Nijmegen the students started a camp on their campus to put their stake in the ground.

Their demands are clear:

  1. Condemn the genocide in Gaza
  2. Cut ties with Israeli universities and companies
  3. Support Palestinian students and universities

Under the threat of heavy rain I visited them. The campus is a nice green area and they setup is a clean organised camp. The big difference with Amsterdam is how quiet it is. Like the Memorial Protest, organised by Plant een Olijfboom last week, they also have children’s shoes on display. The shoes ‘walk’ along the path through the campus.
