Students Against Israeli Apartheid at York University – SAIA York is organizing a protest against Herut Canada’s event at York University scheduled on November 20, 2019. Here is SAIA York’s statement:
All Out! No IDF on Campus
On Nov 20th, Herut Canada with the permission of York University will be hosting an event from 7-9 pm in Vari Hall Room C.
The event will have IDF soldiers/reservists coming to speak to students on campus. This is a shameful moment for the York University administration, to be allowing the soldiers of a foreign military on our campus. The Israeli army is responsible for dozens of human rights violations, the killing of Palestinians on a daily basis, and the continued ethnic cleansing of Palestinians.
We will be protesting the event that is taking place in Vari Hall, Room C (first floor)
Tell York University that we will not tolerate murderers on our campus.

We are super excited to be bringing former IDF soldiers to York University in Toronto to discuss Israel, BDS, and more. Message for more details! We can’t wait to see you all there! Am Yisrael Chai!
