What is SAP?

Student Advocates for Palestine

Student Advocates for Palestine (SAP) seeks to provide support and potential for collaboration for university societies across the UK. The Palestinian cause has a long and proud history of international student solidarity, and often student groups push the boundaries for imaginative and creative campaigning. Student groups are a key pillar of the Palestinian community in the UK, working on the front line confronting new challenges in the fight to defend Palestinians around the world and foster solidarity. But for what they have in energy, enthusiasm and innovation, student groups often lack in resources, time and funding. This is where SAP comes in.

In the academic year 2018/19, we assisted students in Bristol, York, London, Lancaster, Newcastle and Aberdeen to name a few. Organising petitions, facilitating acts of creative resistance, sharing resources, putting on talks and screening films with live Q&As.

Part of a UK Palestine society or looking to establish one?

SAP is here to offer you support where you see fit. We have no interest in telling your society how to operate or what to do, only to offer our resources and ideas where you see fit to apply them.

Student Palestine groups across the UK vary substantially in size, resources and ambition, and so we want to tailor our help to what best suits you. You may be an individual who wants support setting up a society, you may be a modest group which requires information resource packs and support setting up events, or perhaps a well-established society which simply wants funding towards an upcoming event. It’s up to you and we are here to help.

There are currently active student led Palestine-focused societies across 49 UK universities. This is a wonderful figure but with just over 100 universities in the UK, we want to see one at every UK institution. #PalSoc100

β€œSAP got hold of the movie β€˜Naila and the Uprising’ which we had been trying to get hands on for ages. The fast process gave me an impression that PCF is super dedicated to the Palestinian cause, and that they are effective and organized.” – Elin Ek, Aberdeen University Palestine Society

β€œPCF was a great help in organising our events for IAW. They provided access to the film and contact with the production company as well as posters and other flyering materials. It was all very easy to organise and led to a successful event. The film was brilliant and the audience very much appreciated the chance to engage to someone with intimate knowledge of the film’s content and evolution.” Jeneen Hadj-Hammou, Lancaster University Friends of Palestine Society
