Free speech, but not for Palestine
by Mona Dennaoui and Hammam Farah
On Nov. 20, Israel advocacy group Herut Canada at York University held an event with former soldiers from the Israeli Defence Forces (IDF). The IDF has held recruitment drives in Toronto, and it’s illegal for a foreign military to recruit in Canada.
As the Palestine solidarity club on campus, Students Against Israeli Apartheid (SAIA) York, we decided to protest our university administration’s decision to provide space for the event.
