Last week, hundreds of students in Toronto held an amazing walk-out to protest anti-Palestinian racism in their schools. The students called for a "Free Palestine" and used a popular chant that expresses hope for freedom from oppression: "From the River to the Sea, Palestine will be Free." (Read their press release and demands here).
Shockingly, these courageous and inspiring students are now being viciously attacked by pro-Israel groups, who are falsely accusing them of using "genocidal" slogans. This unacceptable bullying campaign, which aims to smear the anti-racist activism of high school students, must be immediately challenged by the TDSB.
