Subcity stands in solidarity with the people of Palestine


As a freeform and independent radio station, we are obligated to lend our platform to the voices that need it most. We are dismayed by the UK government's response, and the narratives we see dominating state and corporate media, that show overwhelming bias against a people being subjected to settler occupation and brutal war crimes. Furthermore, our affiliation with the University of Glasgow compels us to draw attention to how the UofG profits from the conflict, and how grassroots student movements are hoping to disrupt this.


We ask that you familiarise yourself with the news sources below, to get a more informed picture of what is going on right now in Gaza. We will be actively updating this page during the coming days.


Information

https://imeu.org and https://mondoweiss.net/ are both valuable sources of information on what is happening right now in Gaza.



If you are a student the the University of Glasgow, you may find it useful to familiarise yourself with the Uni’s involvement with the conflict. This article from student newspaper The Glasgow Guardian describes how UofG invests in and profits from the arms trade https://glasgowguardian.co.uk/2023/02/03/university-of-glasgow-increases-investments-in-arms-trade/


Protest

We encourage you to show solidarity by attending protests. In Glasgow, there are weekly demonstrations on Saturdays in the city centre.


Charity

We have made a contribution to Medical Aid Palestine, and we encourage our listeners with the means to do the same.
