Colleges and universities across the US have turned into battlegrounds for the Palestinian solidarity movement, as students mobilize against their schools' financial entanglements with the Israeli occupation. At UC Davis and Stanford, student-led struggles have made historic achievements. UC Davis activists recently passed a bill in student government to boycott and divest from all “corporations complicit in human rights violations against Palestinians." At Stanford, students protesting their university's complicity in the genocide in Gaza just ended the longest sit-in in the school's history, camping out for over 120 days. The Real News speaks with student organizers on their recent achievements on their respective campuses, and how to keep the student movement in solidarity with Palestine going.
