McMaster encampment comes to an end as parties agree to terms

The encampment at McMaster University has come to an end after nearly three weeks after the university and protestors agreed on terms. The protesters agreed to take down the encampment on Saturday evening. Among its commitments, McMaster has agreed to direct its International Strategy Advisory Committee to develop a framework for human rights considerations in international agreements, hold a meeting in June about its investment strategy, and publish a series of stories about McMaster students impacted by global conflicts and crises. “We … appreciate the willingness of those in the encampment who were willing to participate in such productive discussions,” stated McMaster.
