On November 29, 2019 Hillel York reported:
Last night at their Annual General Meeting, the York Federation of Students (YFS) passed a motion aimed at preventing Israelis from being invited to speak on campus. This motion is a direct result of recent events at York. As the body charged with representing all undergraduate students, the YFS has failed, yet again, to accurately characterize the facts. There was nothing peaceful about last week’s demonstration, which was organized to shut-down free speech and intimidate Jewish students. Hillel York condemns the YFS for taking yet another step against free speech and against the Jewish campus community. Antisemitism has no place on our campus, and the YFS should be ashamed of their continued attack of Jewish students and the Jewish state.
