UvA Protest

Occupation of the University of Amsterdam by their students protesting the collaboration of the university with Israel.

The students of the University of Amsterdam question the board for months about being open about the relationship of the university with Israel and they demand the ties are cut. It took a long while before the university was open about the relationships with Israeli universities. According to the UvA they only collaborate on non-military projects. But according to a study by Maya Wind that doesn’t matter.

On May 8, 2024 the students blocked the university for the second day in a row as their camp was removed overnight. I want there to make photos of their protest. A few hours later the police attacked as the university claimed there was also non-students.
