uk universities spying on student protestors palestine

British universities are ‘spying’ on student protestors, by ‘collaborating’ with police to monitor students amid a wave of pro-Palestine protests, according to an investigation by Liberty Investigates and Metro.co.uk.

From telling one university the flying of a Palestinian flag on campus does not “look well” on their establishment, to expressing worries over the “number of foreign students” admitted at another, police forces have had a “cosy” relationship with university administrators in recent months.

The investigation also found universities shared protesters’ data with police despite not being asked to do so.

One University of York student said officers visited her home on November 19 to refer her to Prevent because she posted, ‘From the river to the sea, Palestine will be free,’ on X, at a campus rally.
