Student camps will continue in the face of CRUE's "empty promises" and demand a "total break" with Israel


The spokespersons for the Interuniversity Bloc of Madrid have announced that the student camps on university campuses will continue in the face of the "empty promises and words" of the Conference of Rectors of Spanish Universities (CRUE) and have demanded the "total rupture" of all types of relationships and agreements with universities and companies in Israel.

"We do not want the rectors to 'review' their contracts," said one of the representatives of the Interuniversity Block of Madrid, Víctor Lucio, this Thursday at a press conference at the doors of the UCM Student House in Ciudad Universitaria.
