UAL PSC List of Demands to the UAL Authorities

Due to the prevalent crisis surrounding the conflict and occupation in Gaza and due to the humanitarian requirements of its people; University of the Arts London students have actively chosen to take a stand against the oppressive actions of Israel.
We have therefore issued a list of demands to be undertaken, with immediate effect, by the University of the Arts London.
The list of demands set up by the UAL PSC (University of the Arts London Palestinian Solidarity Campaign) are as follows:

UAL must issue a full public statement condemning the bombings of educational institutions in Gaza. This statement must be official and formal in its entirety.
UAL must agree to break all corporate links with Israel to add pressure on its denial of Palestinians human rights. Including the ending of contracts with DGMARKET.
UAL must survey its resources with the aim of donating any unused or out of date books, computers, furniture or other teaching resources with an educational institute within Gaza. A link should be established between the two academic institutions and sustained support should be maintained for a minimum of 5 years.
UAL must provide 10 fully-funded scholarships to Palestinian students affected by the recent conflict.
UAL with the support of the UALPSC, must organise a one-day intercollegiate charity event to raise funds for humanitarian aid to the people of Gaza.
UAL must agree to hold an exhibition curated in-part by the UALPSC. Artworks exhibited to focus on the conflict and humanitarian crisis. shown in one of the University's spaces of the UAL PSC's choice.
