My Student Union wants to twin with a Palestinian institution

Late in the day, our UCU administrator sent an email to all local members about a meeting organised by my Student Union to discuss twinning with a West Bank uni.

Just for the record, when I tried to publicise the OneVoice event- organised by the Student Union back in November – in a similar way, she eventually emailed back (late in the day – the evening before, in fact) to tell me that the Exec had decided not to forward my message, which should instead go on the discussion forum it had set up for these kinds of notices. Hmm. That’s the kind of double standard that adds to my suspicion that this twinning thing is as much about two fingers to Israel as it is about standing with the Palestinians.
