Dozens of students at Harvard University in the United States participated in a protest against Zionist occupation crimes and in solidarity with the Palestinian people.
This protest took place during the university’s annual welcome reception for new students and was organized by the Harvard Committee for Solidarity with Palestine in Massachusetts.
During the protest, participants raised slogans demanding that the university withdraw its investments from companies profiting from Zionist occupation.
They also called for not supporting the apartheid system and emphasized the importance of academic boycott of Israeli universities and institutions.
Earlier, a student group in support of the Palestinian cause within Harvard University organized a demonstration calling for an end to Zionist occupation.
The demonstration, organized by a student group named “Harvard Divest from Israel,” called for the university to boycott any company involved in or facilitating the continuation of settlements in the occupied Palestinian territories.
Protesters urged the university administration to adopt a stance of boycotting international companies that support the Zionist occupation.
In the central square of the university, demonstrators carried banners demanding the university to divest from companies associated with the occupation in Palestine or complicit in human rights violations against Palestinians.
