Concordia building vandalized, doors chained by protestors

A building at Concordia University was vandalized and briefly occupied by protestors on Monday morning. “A small group of masked protesters blocked all access to one of our buildings … chaining doors and vandalizing the lobby,” explained Concordia spokeswoman Vannina Maestracci. Montréal police were called to campus, but the protestors left on their own before police intervened. CTV News reports that some protestors went to join the Université du Québec à Montréal pro-Palestinian encampment, which MSN says will be dismantled by June 6. Government of Québec higher education minister Pascale Déry put out a statement on social media calling for protestors to express themselves without resorting to intimidation, incitement, and vandalism.
