Dear Professor David Latchman,

As a student at Birkbeck, I am writing to express my deep concern about the university’s complicity in Israeli apartheid. As a member of the university community, I call on Birkbeck to divest from companies complicit in the oppression of Palestinians. Specifically, I ask the university to immediately sever its ties with BAE Systems.

As you are no doubt aware, Israel’s apartheid system is becoming increasingly visible, and there is now growing pressure on institutions and companies to re-evaluate their connections to this. In April 2021, Human Rights Watch declared Israel to be an apartheid state and condemned its systematic discrimination of the Palestinians across the Gaza Strip, the West Bank and within Israel*.

I call on Birkbeck to immediately sever its ties with the following:

  1. BAE Systems. As one of the world’s largest arms producers, BAE Systems works with Lockheed Martin and Israeli company Rafael to produce the naval Protestor drone. This drone is used to maintain the blockade of Gaza, which amounts to collective punishment and thus breaches Article 33 of the Fourth Geneva Convention**.

As a student at Birkbeck, I find this institution’s complicity with Israeli apartheid deeply troubling. I hope that you will take these concerns seriously and I look forward to receiving your response.

Yours sincerely,

Dear Professor Sir David Eastwood,

As a student at the University of Birmingham, I am writing to express my deep concern about the university’s complicity in Israeli apartheid. As a member of the university community, I call on the University of Birmingham to divest from companies complicit in the oppression of the Palestinians. Specifically, I ask the university to immediately sever its ties with Booking.com and Hewlett Packard (HP).

In April 2021, Human Rights Watch declared Israel to be an apartheid state and condemned its systematic discrimination of the Palestinians across the Gaza Strip, the West Bank and within Israel*.

I call on the University of Birmingham to immediately sever its ties with the following:

  1. Booking.com. Online travel agency Booking.com advertises accommodation in Israeli settlements which are illegal under international law. According to Amnesty International, Booking.com has at least 45 hotel and rental contracts in illegal Israeli settlements. This accommodation is built on the former homes of Palestinians, whose expulsion has been deemed a war crime by the United Nations**.
  2. HP. By providing the technology for the control systems used at Israel’s checkpoints, information technology company HP plays a direct role in denying Palestinians Article 13 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. In addition, HP has contracts with the Israeli prison system, despite ‘severe and continuous’ violations of children’s rights in Israeli prisons according to the UN Committee on the Rights of the Child***.

As a student at Birmingham, I find this institution’s complicity with Israeli apartheid deeply troubling. I hope that you will take these concerns seriously and I look forward to receiving your response.

I call on Imperial to immediately sever its ties with the following:

  1. Rolls-Royce PLC. As one of the largest arms producers in the world, Rolls-Royce PLC manufactures components of the F-35 Joint Strike Fighters which are repeatedly used by Israel to attack civilians in Gaza. In the latest attack on Gaza in May 2021, four high-rise buildings in Gaza City were attacked by Israel. Amnesty International has recently stated that these attacks on residential homes must be investigated as war crimes**.
  1. BAE Systems. As another of the world’s largest arms producers, BAE Systems works with Lockheed Martin and Israeli company Rafael to produce the naval Protestor drone. This drone is used to maintain the blockade of Gaza, which amounts to collective punishment and thus breaches Article 33 of the Fourth Geneva Convention***.
  2. Booking.com. Online travel agency Booking.com advertises accommodation in Israeli settlements which are illegal under international law. According to Amnesty International, Booking.com has at least 45 hotel and rental contracts in illegal Israeli settlements. This accommodation is built on the former homes of Palestinians, whose expulsion has been deemed a war crime by the United Nations****.

As a student at Imperial, I find this institution’s complicity with Israeli apartheid deeply troubling. I hope that you will take these concerns seriously and I look forward to receiving your response.

Dear Professor Phil Deans,

As a student at the American International University in London, I am writing to express my deep concern about the university’s complicity in Israeli apartheid. As a member of the university community, I call on the American International University to divest from companies complicit in the oppression of the Palestinians.

As you are no doubt aware, Israel’s apartheid system is becoming increasingly visible, and there is now growing pressure on institutions and companies to re-evaluate their connections to this. In April 2021, Human Rights Watch declared Israel to be an apartheid state and condemned its systematic discrimination of the Palestinians across the Gaza Strip, the West Bank and within Israel*.

As a student at Richmond, I find this institution’s complicity with Israeli apartheid deeply troubling. I hope that you will take these concerns seriously and I look forward to receiving your response.

Yours sincerely,

Dear Professor Koen Lamberts,

As a student at the University of Sheffield, I am writing to express my deep concern about the university’s complicity in Israeli apartheid. As a member of the university community, I call on the University of Sheffield to divest from companies complicit in the oppression of the Palestinians. Specifically, I ask the university to immediately sever its ties with Rolls Royce PLC, BAE Systems and Hewlett Packard (HP).

As you are no doubt aware, Israel’s apartheid system is becoming increasingly visible, and there is now growing pressure on institutions and companies to re-evaluate their connections to this. In April 2021, Human Rights Watch declared Israel to be an apartheid state and condemned its systematic discrimination of the Palestinians across the Gaza Strip, the West Bank and within Israel*.

I call on the University of Sheffield to immediately sever its ties with the following:

  1. Rolls-Royce PLC. As one of the largest arms producers in the world, Rolls-Royce PLC manufactures components of the F-35 Joint Strike Fighters which are repeatedly used by Israel to attack civilians in Gaza. In the latest attack on Gaza in May 2021, four high-rise buildings in Gaza City were attacked by Israel. Amnesty International has recently stated that these attacks on residential homes must be investigated as war crimes**.
  2. BAE Systems. As another of the world’s largest arms producers, BAE Systems works with Lockheed Martin and Israeli company Rafael to produce the naval Protestor drone. This drone is used to maintain the blockade of Gaza, which amounts to collective punishment and thus breaches Article 33 of the Fourth Geneva Convention***.
  3. HP. By providing the technology for the control systems used at Israel’s checkpoints, information technology company HP plays a direct role in denying Palestinians Article 13 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. In addition, HP has contracts with the Israeli prison system, despite ‘severe and continuous’ violations of children’s rights in Israeli prisons according to the UN Committee on the Rights of the Child****.

As a student at Sheffield, I find this institution’s complicity with Israeli apartheid deeply troubling. I hope that you will take these concerns seriously and I look forward to receiving your response.

As a student at the University of Cambridge, I am writing to express my deep concern about the university’s complicity in Israeli apartheid. As a member of the university community, I call on Cambridge to divest from companies complicit in the oppression of the Palestinians. Specifically, I ask the university to immediately sever its ties with BAE Systems.

As you are no doubt aware, Israel’s apartheid system is becoming increasingly visible, and there is now growing pressure on institutions and companies to re-evaluate their connections to this. In April 2021, Human Rights Watch declared Israel to be an apartheid state and condemned its systematic discrimination of the Palestinians across the Gaza Strip, the West Bank and within Israel*.

I call on Cambridge to immediately sever its ties with the following:

  1. BAE Systems. As another of the world’s largest arms producers, BAE Systems works with Lockheed Martin and Israeli company Rafael to produce the naval Protestor drone. This drone is used to maintain the blockade of Gaza, which amounts to collective punishment and thus breaches Article 33 of the Fourth Geneva Convention**.

As a student at Cambridge, I find this institution’s complicity with Israeli apartheid deeply troubling. I hope that you will take these concerns seriously and I look forward to receiving your response.

Yours sincerely,

Dear Professor Katie Normington,

As one of the largest arms producers in the world, Rolls-Royce PLC manufactures components of the F-35 Joint Strike Fighters which are repeatedly used by Israel to attack civilians in Gaza. In the latest attack on Gaza in May 2021, four high-rise buildings in Gaza City were attacked by Israel. Amnesty International has recently stated that these attacks on residential homes must be investigated as war crimes**.
  2. BAE Systems. As another of the world’s largest arms producers, BAE Systems works with Lockheed Martin and Israeli company Rafael to produce the naval Protestor drone. This drone is used to maintain the blockade of Gaza, which amounts to collective punishment and thus breaches Article 33 of the Fourth Geneva Convention***.
  3. By providing the technology for the control systems used at Israel’s checkpoints, information technology company HP plays a direct role in denying Palestinians Article 13 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. In addition, HP has contracts with the Israeli prison system, despite ‘severe and continuous’ violations of children’s rights in Israeli prisons according to the UN Committee on the Rights of the Child****.

Amnesty International has recently stated that these attacks on residential homes must be investigated as war crimes**.
  2. BAE Systems. As another of the world’s largest arms producers, BAE Systems works with Lockheed Martin and Israeli company Rafael to produce the naval Protestor drone. This drone is used to maintain the blockade of Gaza, which amounts to collective punishment and thus breaches Article 33 of the Fourth Geneva Convention***.
  3. HP. By providing the technology for the control systems used at Israel’s checkpoints, information technology company HP plays a direct role in denying Palestinians Article 13 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. In addition, HP has contracts with the Israeli prison system, despite ‘severe and continuous’ violations of children’s rights in Israeli prisons according to the UN Committee on the Rights of the Child****.

As a student at Leicester, I find this institution’s complicity with Israeli apartheid deeply troubling. I hope that you will take these concerns seriously and I look forward to receiving your response.

Dear Professor Dame Janet Beer,

As a student at the University of Liverpool, I am writing to express my deep concern about the university’s complicity in Israeli apartheid. As a member of the university community, I call on the University of Liverpool to divest from companies complicit in the oppression of the Palestinians. Specifically, I ask the university to immediately sever its ties with Rolls Royce PLC, BAE Systems and Hewlett Packard (HP).

As you are no doubt aware, Israel’s apartheid system is becoming increasingly visible, and there is now growing pressure on institutions and companies to re-evaluate their connections to this. In April 2021, Human Rights Watch declared Israel to be an apartheid state and condemned its systematic discrimination of the Palestinians across the Gaza Strip, the West Bank and within Israel*.

I call on the University of Liverpool to immediately sever its ties with the following:

  1. Rolls-Royce PLC. As one of the largest arms producers in the world, Rolls-Royce PLC manufactures components of the F-35 Joint Strike Fighters which are repeatedly used by Israel to attack civilians in Gaza. In the latest attack on Gaza in May 2021, four high-rise buildings in Gaza City were attacked by Israel.

Dear Baroness Minouche Shafik,

  2. Booking.com. Online travel agency Booking.com advertises accommodation in Israeli settlements which are illegal under international law. According to Amnesty International, Booking.com has at least 45 hotel and rental contracts in illegal Israeli settlements. This accommodation is built on the former homes of Palestinians, whose expulsion has been deemed a war crime by the United Nations***.

As a student at LSE, I find this institution’s complicity with Israeli apartheid deeply troubling. I hope that you will take these concerns seriously and I look forward to receiving your response.
