TODAY @Columbia: Mock Israeli Checkpoint Action

Columbia University Students for Justice in Palestine (C-SJP) will be constructing a theatrical mock Israeli checkpoint at the Morningside campus on the Low Library steps. This checkpoint will serve as a demonstration of the hardships that Palestinian students face daily while trying to access their schools and homes. This event is part of Right to Education Week (R2E), an international week of action that was called upon from students in Palestine (http://right2edu.birzeit.edu/).

Please come show your support and solidarity.

There will be a counter demonstration and we need as many volunteers/supporters as possible to make this theatrical mock checkpoint successful! We will ask supporters to line up as Palestinians and we will distribute ID cards. We also ask supporters to come as bystanders so we are not overwhelmed with opposition. We hope you can stand with us tomorrow. Please spread the word!
When: 11.30am-2.30pm
Where: Low Plaza Steps, Columbia University

One thought on “TODAY @Columbia: Mock Israeli Checkpoint Action

  1. To be fair, right next to this you should put up a “mock Israeli university cafeteria” with fake scattered body parts, kind of like the real body parts of students who were murdered at Hebrew University by a Palestinians suicide bomber. I don’t think he cared too much for their “right to education” let alone their right to live…
