New pro-Palestinian encampments set up at Dal, UQÀM, UWaterloo, UWinnipeg

Protesters have set up new pro-Palestinian encampments on the campuses of Dalhousie University, Université du Québec à Montréal, the University of Waterloo, and the University of Winnipeg. A coalition of students from Dal, NSCAD University, Saint Mary’s University, and the University of King’s College have set up a “peaceful and informational encampment on Dal’s campus.” In addition to demanding that UQÀM cut all ties with Israeli institutions, protesters at UQÀM have called for McGill University to withdraw its request for a court order to clear the encampment on its campus. UWaterloo stated that it is taking “steps to ensure the safety of the campus,” while UWinnipeg released a statement indicating that it is monitoring the situation carefully to ensure everyone’s safety.
