Pro-Palestine students hold sit-in after BDS vote cancelled
- George Washington University students launched a sit-in Monday night to protest the cancellation of a student government vote on a BDS resolution.
- The vote was cancelled because GW refused to provide additional security for the meeting, which students had requested after an anti-BDS group posted flyers on campus targeting student groups that support the resolution.
George Washington University’s Student Association was forced to cancel a vote on a controversial BDS bill due to safety concerns, leading pro-divestment students to occupy the senate office.
As Campus Reform recently reported, the Student Association was set to vote for a second time on a BDS resolution that failed to pass last year.
