How Protesters Occupied Arts West

View descriptionShare

On Wednesday, dozens of pro-Palestine protesters occupied the University of Melbourne’s Arts West building. They say this sit-in will last until they are either forcibly removed or their demands are met. They’re calling for the divestment of university funds from weapons manufacturers.  

The university has threatened those involved with severe consequences. Last night, police were given the green light to evict protesters. 

It’s an escalation of the ongoing Gaza solidarity camp on the university’s south lawn, where tents popped up over three weeks ago. 

The Yarn spoke to The Citizen’s James Costa about his reporting on the sit-in.
