Like I said, It's a pro-war protest. Expect retaliation. Could have been a peace protest but they got fooled.

mccarthyism, blacklisting, etc
 

TMU released “Strengthening the Pillars: Report of the TMU External Review” on Friday. The 169-page report is the culmination of the investigation into the incident led by Retired Chief Justice of Nova Scotia J. Michael MacDonald. MacDonald concluded that while the open letter was “understandably troubling and offensive to many,” the students behind it were validly exercising the “wide latitude” of expression protected under the school’s Statement on Freedom of Speech.
 
“The standard is not perfection,” said MacDonald. “Students are entitled to make mistakes, and even cause harm, without necessarily facing sanctions.”
 
MacDonald’s report criticized TMU’s response to the open letter, and the backlash against students that came from the broader legal community. He also admonished the students behind the letter for their ineffective advocacy on behalf of Palestinian rights.
 
“Justice MacDonald's core findings should be celebrated by anyone who supports a free Palestine, or even just a free society,” says Joshua Sealy-Harrington, assistant professor at the Lincoln Alexander School of Law. “He properly recognized the paramount importance of free expression and academic freedom, particularly in the university setting, and only more so during times of conflict.”
 
“He also, crucially, found that support for Palestinian resistance and opposition to Israeli occupation, apartheid, and genocide are properly characterized as not antisemitic and not a breach of any Canadian laws or TMU policies,” he says. “Indeed, it is Israel, not the students, who is clearly acting unlawfully. And if anything, it is the reprisal against the students that was actually unlawful, not their legitimate political expression.”

If the goal is peace, have the made any progress toward that?  How does that saying go about doing the same thing and expecting different results?

Dozens of pro-Palestinian student protesters arrested in April after occupying and barricading a building at Columbia University in New York City have had all criminal charges against them dropped, Manhattan prosecutors said at a court hearing.

*snip*

Prosecutors said they were seeking to prosecute only one of the 46 protesters arrested that night. James Carlson, who is not affiliated with Columbia, is charged with criminal mischief and arson for setting an Israeli flag alight prior to the takeover and for damaging a police surveillance camera in jail.

Carlson, who appeared in court with his attorney, did not comment on the charges other than his lawyer saying they planned to challenge the prosecution.

A Columbia spokesperson declined to comment on Thursday’s developments in court.

That’s a good catch.

These activities are leading to a political sea change, and these articles you dig up for more to read, are helping expedite what’s coming.

Judge grants U of T injunction to clear pro-Palestinian encampment

An Ontario judge has granted the University of Toronto an injunction allowing it to clear out a pro-Palestinian encampment from its downtown Toronto campus. The encampment was set up more than a month ago on a section of the campus known as King's College Circle. The protesters have refused to leave until their demands are met.

Refuse to leave by their own volition. They don’t have the equipment or the will necessary to stay until their demands are met.

Stop calling them pro-Palestinian encampments. They are terrorist funded antisemitic groups.
