The GAMMA programme is a three-year programme to develop and improve “autonomous systems”. According to the University of Liverpool, (one of the universities involved in the programme)
autonomous systems are technology based solutions that replace humans in tasks that are mundane, dangerous and dirty, or detailed and precise, across sectors, including aerospace, nuclear, automotive and petrochemicals.
“it is shameful that such contracts still exist in educational institutions. It is an important issue for students to act upon, the technology developed by the GAMMA programme prevent any advancement in peaceful negotiations and this is proved by history over and over again. It is our responsibility, as educated students, to prevent and not tolerate such acts on our behalf. With guided help from CAAT, Liverpool Friends of Palestine society will initiate a campaign to cleanse our university of any arms trade.”
