UBC Administrators Must Protect the Safety of Students
Action Alert: Send a letter telling UBC to investigate fake Hamas stickers spread to target Muslims and Palestinians on campus
A recent incident involving offensive stickers being distributed at the University of British Columbia shows that more needs to be done to protect students from rising Islamophobic and anti-Palestinian hate on campus.
The phrase “I (heart) Hamas” was placed on the sticker alongside the UBC Social Justice Centre’s (SJC) name and logo. The message was clearly meant to target the Centre and students speaking out against violations of Palestinian human rights.
This disturbing act was done by an independent contractor who has since been released by the Hillel at UBC. The sticker were meant to put a target on the backs of those associated with social justice activism on campus.
