After Squirrel Hill – October 29, 2018 Noah Kulwin
Statement Regarding Tree of Life Synagogue Shootings on 26 October 2018
Students for Justice in Palestine at the University of Vermont sends their unending support and solidarity to the Jewish community after this weekend’s atrocity. The uptick in right wing violence in the past several years has targeted Jews, Arabs, Muslims, people mistakenly classified as Muslims, and activists on the political left. All of our members fear and disdain these acts of violence and the reprehensible ideologies underpinning them. We must come together to fight neo-Nazism, white supremacy and antisemitism in America and around the world: and it begins here, on this campus. We stand with you against alt-right encroachments at our university and in our community. Bigotry and persecution will find no sanction with us.
We wish the Jewish community strength and healing. If you feel so inclined, please do not hesitate to reach out via message or email (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you feel as though you would like to chat. As always, SJP welcomes students of all colors, classes, religions, and opinions at our meetings. SJP is a safe place for you to be who you are.
