Pro-Palestine students ‘blocked from campus’ during royal visit

Students from two campaign groups at King’s College London have claimed that they were barred from campus buildings while the Queen was on site because of their political beliefs.

At least 10 students said they had their access cards blocked by the university while the Queen and the Duchess of Cambridge were on campus to open the refurbished Bush House building on 19 March.

The students are involved with two campaign groups: the pro-Palestinian student society Action Palestine; and KCL Justice4Cleaners, which campaigns to bring outsourced cleaning staff back in house. KCL Justice4Cleaners claims that all students involved in the campaign had their cards blocked.
