UQÀM approves resolution meeting protesters’ demands, students dismantle encampment

The Université du Québec à Montréal has approved a resolution that meets most of the demands made by the protesters who set up a pro-Palestinian encampment on campus earlier this month. The protesters have agreed to dismantle the encampment by June 6th. Among the demands that UQÀM has agreed to include calling for an immediate ceasefire in Gaza and asking the UQÀM Foundation to ensure it has no direct investments in weapons companies. “UQÀM is and remains a place for exchange and reflection,” UQÀM rector Stéphane Pallage. “I’m proud we’ve been able to maintain a dialogue with those present at the camp since it was set up on May 12.”
