"White nationalists and neo-Nazis joined forces with Zionists (including some saying they were Israelis) to attack UCLA’s Palestine Solidarity Encampment, whose residents included a large number of Jewish students. The assailants were not affiliated with the university. One neo-Nazi was heard shouting, “we’re here to finish what Hitler started,” without any apparent protest from the self-identified Zionists. At least one person present has been identified as an associate of the Proud Boys."

CBC has whitewashed Israel’s crimes in Gaza. I saw it firsthand.

Working for five years as a producer at the public broadcaster, I witnessed the double standards and discrimination in its coverage of Palestine—and experienced directly how CBC disciplines those who speak out

Sticker seen at shopping centre carpark in Deer Park. Without more context it could be interpreted as anti-semitic, although the website doesn't otherwise appear to be. Does anyone know the specific context of this meme?

Today marks the 54th anniversary of the murder of four students by the Ohio National Guard at Kent State University. Those who have violently attacked the student encampments over Palestine are the heirs of the killers at Kent state.

Under the stars on a beautiful spring evening at the University of for a rally in support of the student encampment. The administration has backed down on trying to get it busted up by the cops (so far).
