Pro-Palestinian encampment rejects U of T’s latest offer


Last week, the University of Toronto sent a proposal to representatives of the pro-Palestinian encampment on campus. The university reportedly offered to expedite processes for considering the protesters’ divestment and disclosure demands and confirmed that U of T holds no direct investments in any companies that produce armaments. CBC reports that the protesters rejected the proposal on the grounds that it has no “guaranteed outcomes,” calling it instead a “restatement of university policy and procedures that we were already aware of.” U of T said that it is committed to ending the encampment peacefully through dialogue, but that it will continue to pursue an injunction to remove the encampment.
