Monday, Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP) held a mock Israeli checkpoint as part of their Palestine Awareness Week. SJP held events throughout the week to bring awareness to the issues between Palestine and Israel.
SJP put on a “die-in” on Tuesday, where students acted out a soldier killing Palestinians. On Wednesday, SJP put on a skit called The 63 Year-Old Woman Named Palestine.
The group also had an art exhibit in the quad, made up of a wall of political art meant to represent the wall that separates Israel and Palestine.
Supporters of Israel came to many of the events, expressing their desire for peace and dialogue amongst both the student groups and the countries.
