Students for Justice in Palestine Protest Israeli Independence Day

BROOKLYN COLLEGE–Protesting chants and calls rang through Campus Road as many students, faculty and visitors stopped to stare as they made their way onto campus Thursday, Apr. 27. About 70 people were part of a protest held by the Brooklyn College chapter of the Students for Justice in Palestine. The protest, titled the 75-Year Nakba (Arabic word for “catastrophe”) Rally, began directly outside of Tanger Hillel, a Jewish community center for Brooklyn College students.
