Swiss students occupy university building, demand end to science co-op with Israel

At Switzerland’s Lausanne University, around 100 students are occupying a building to back demands including an end to scientific cooperation with Israel.

“Palestinians have been dying for over 200 days, but we’re not being heard,” one protester tells Swiss television on Saturday.

“Now there’s a global movement to get governments to take action, but it’s not happening. That’s why we want to get universities involved now.”

The university says the occupation could continue until Monday provided it does not disrupt work on campus.
