'Racist': York University pro-Palestinian protesters demand president, administration resign

Pro-Palestinian protesters gathered at York University’s Keele Campus Thursday where they accused the university’s president, Rhonda Lenton, and her administration of being “racist.” York Federation of Students Vice President of Campaigns & Advocacy, Somar Abuaziza, said “We have seen the extreme rise of anti-Palestinian racism on-campus in the last eight months. But these actions did not start in 2023. In fact, in 2019, the university allowed for the invitation of the IOF (Israel Occupation Forces) on our campus.”
