Edinburgh University twins with Birzeit

Last Wednesday, the Edinburgh Univeristy Students’ Association passed a motion at its annual general meeting twinning UofE with Birzeit University.

The motion condemns attacks on Palestinian education, and affiliates UofE to the Right to Education campaing at Birzeit. In practical terms, the motion aims to raise awareness of the difficulties facing Palestinian students and teachers within the National Union of Students; as well as through film felstivals and photography exhibitions in a “Right to Education” week on campus. It also provides for exchanges of students and staff where possible.
