Protestors outside of Hunter College

HUNTER COLLEGE — Hunter College said they were conducting an investigation into pro-Palestinian student groups on alleged accounts of physical intimidation and hate speech against Jewish students during a protest held on Feb. 28.

In an interview with diasporic magazine New York Jewish Weekly, a Hunter spokesperson reprimanded the language used during the protest, which included protestors chanting for Jewish students to “pick a side.”  The spokesperson, whose identity was not explicitly named, said it was “neither constructive nor civil,” and that the college opened an investigation regarding the protest and plans to take “appropriate action.”
