McGill students confirm end of hunger strike

Protesters at McGill University recently ended their hunger strike, which began in February in an effort to persuade McGill to cut ties with Israeli-linked institutions. CTV News reports that the protesters ended the hunger strike last month, citing the advice of medical professionals. “While determined to achieve our goals, the sacrifices made by [those participating in] our hunger strike surpass what they should have to bear for us to be heard,” the group said. McGill issued a statement expressing its relief that the hunger strike had ended. “McGill continues to encourage our students and other members of the community to prioritize engagement that doesn’t compromise anyone’s health and safety, including their own,” read the statement.
