Protesters set up new encampments at Queen’s, USherbrooke, UWindsor


Protesters have set up new encampments on the campuses of Queen’s University, Université de Sherbrooke, and the University of Windsor, joining the growing number of pro-Palestinian protests across the country. The new encampments’ demands include asking each respective university to divest from companies and organizations connected with Israel. In response to these calls for divestment, Queen’s said that it would review these demands in line with a procedure that requires a written case and a petition of at least 200 signatures. USherbrooke is “evaluating the regulatory and security conformity of the installation” on its campus. UWindsor indicated to the Windsor Star that its investment decisions are made in alignment with the United Nations’ Principles for Responsible Investing.
