In Human Rights, International, Middle East

On Day 21 of their indefinite hunger strike for Palestine, McGill University students Rania Amine and Bogdan Stilmashenko spoke with me today about McGill’s refusal to accede to any of their just demands.

Those demands focus on the McGill endowment’s investments in arms manufacturers who profit from the mass slaughter of Palestinian civilians. The hunger strikers also seek a limited form of academic boycott of Israel.

As Rania and Bogdan explain, McGill University’s administration refuses even to meet with them publicly, insisting instead that any meeting between the hunger strikers and the administration be strictly private.

We also discussed the mainstream media’s paltry and largely negative coverage of their efforts to highlight McGill’s complicity in the suffering of the Palestinian people.
