Pro-Palestinian student group plans national ‘day of resistance,’ calls for ‘mass mobilization’

The national chapter of the National Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP) posted a “call to action” on social media Sunday and asked their student chapters to hold demonstrations at their colleges in support of the Palestinians. 

The National SJP’s Instagram account called for their student groups to mobilize a “day of resistance” in support of the Palestinians following the terrorist attacks in Israel carried out by Hamas. 

Colleges and Universities such as Rutgers, the University of Virginia, Ohio State University, the University of Massachusets Amherst, Kent State University, New York University, University of North Carolina, University of Illinois, Butler and Purdue are holding a demonstration, some are calling it a “teach in,” in support of the Palestinians, according to posts on both the national SJP’s Instagram as well as their collegiate chapters. 

“Join us at 5:30 PM Thursday, Oct 12th on the Rotunda steps for a teach in and demonstration about the current situation in Gaza, the events and history that led to this moment, and a discussion about how we can be in solidarity with Palestinians resisting occupation,” the University of Virginia’s chapter said in a post on Instagram.
