Birmingham University Protests reach fever pitch

For the past week, various organisations and students have directed protests at Birmingham University in light of today's forthcoming event, at which Azaam Tamimi is due to speak.

Last night, protests reached fever pitch as this Facebook group swelled to over 650 members, as well as currently over 480+ have signed this petition. Finally, a student at the university organised a protest which is taking place today, details of which can be found here. 

If you're available, we urge you to attend.  Take as many pictures and videos as you can.  Student Rights will be covering this one remotely!
