Statement of Solidarity with Palestinians on Brown’s Campus and Beyond


On Wednesday, April 2, to its shame, our University Hillel will welcome to our campus a veteran combat soldier from the Israeli Occupation Forces. The same forces that boasted of using white phosphorus on the besieged population of Gaza, the same forces that terrorize the lives of the Palestinian population living under the illegal Israeli occupation, the same forces that shot and murdered 14-year old Palestinian teenager Yusuf Shawamra last week as he gathered herbs for cooking.

Concerned members of the Brown and Providence communities are expressing their solidarity with Palestinians at Brown and elsewhere and demanding the Brown RISD Hillel cancels the talk. Please join us in supporting the students and community members who are calling for the cancellation of this event!


If the Brown-RISD Hillel refuses to cancel Anthony’s speech, a protest will be held at the venue. See facebook page for details:
