“Hey, hey, ho, ho, the occupation has got to go”
The image of the Ivy League has been so tarnished by the last two weeks.
Yale Daily News reports:
Hundreds walk out for Palestine, demand action from Yale
Members of the Yale and New Haven communities gathered on Cross Campus on Wednesday, Oct. 25, and yelled chants including “Hey, hey, ho, ho, the occupation has got to go,” “When people are occupied, resistance is justified” and “Yale, Yale, you can’t hide, you’re financing genocide” as part of a national walkout calling on universities to support Palestinians. Protesters at Yale called on Israel to end its siege of Gaza and also demanded that the University divest from weapons manufacturers supplying arms to Israel.
The University did not immediately respond to a Wednesday night request for comment on the allegations that protesters made against Yale. As of Wednesday night, the News had not yet independently verified whether Yale invests in weapons manufacturers.
At least one hundred students walked out of their classes to march down Prospect Street before gathering on Cross Campus in front of Sterling Memorial Library. Speakers shared stories and information about the Israel-Hamas war and the humanitarian crisis in Gaza.
The protestors demanded that the University call for an immediate end to the siege on Gaza and to divest from weapons manufacturers like Lockheed Martin. The Yale walkout joined over 100 planned Wednesday protests in support of Gaza at universities across the country; the nationwide initiative was organized by eight groups, including National Students for Justice in Palestine.

Let's make it clear. If you're chanting “resistance is justified” in the aftermath of the brutality that was the 10/7 massacres, you are saying you think it's okay to kill the Jew if you have a good enough reason.
Oh, and this is at Yale.pic.twitter.com/89PcwAoQ9X
