Spanish universities protest against Palestinian genocide

Madrid, May 7 (Prensa Latina) The solidarity with the Palestinian people in different universities worldwide began in Valencia, Spain, but other higher educational centers joined the movement on Tuesday.

Barcelona, Madrid, the Basque Country, Navarre, and Aragon found echoes of university students who demand a ceasefire to “achieve the end of the Palestinian genocide.”

Esther Monge, a political science student and a member of the “Estudiants per Palestina” association, is one of the visible faces of the camps in Valencia as a member of the Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions (BDS) movement, “País Valenciá,” from which the idea was originated.

The Spanish Government, led by its President Pedro Sánchez, has also insisted on the need to acknowledge the State of Palestine as a transcendental step towards the Middle East’s pacification.

In addition to demanding the end of the aggression against the Palestinians in Gaza, the students called for the cessation of agreements between universities and institutions and any Israeli company or organization that finances this kind of apartheid.

The students also called on the universities to go beyond equidistance, describing the events in Gaza as genocide, “is not conflict or war.”
