The eviction notice that sparked debate across campus and in a variety of international news sources, pictured here in full.
Harvard College Palestine Solidarity Committee members posted hundreds of such eviction notices on doors of freshman (Harvard Yard) dormitories, as well as in Adams, Quincy, Lowell, Kirkland, Winthrop, and Eliot upperclassman houses.
Although a number of eviction notices were then removed, ripped, and left on the entryway floors by unknown vandals, the message reached a large audience at Harvard and raising debate and discussions over numerous email lists.
This campaign began Israeli Apartheid Week 2013 at Harvard, which also included a mock Apartheid Wall being erected in the Science Center Plaza on Monday, the screening of Oscar-nominated documentary “5 Broken Cameras” on Thursday, and which will culminate today (Friday) with a talk by Prof. Noam Chomsky on the subject of the future of the pro-Palestinian movement in relation to the Israel-South Africa analogy.
We hope this brief glimpse of the reality in Palestine will lead many Harvard students to question current U.S. support for the Israeli government and regime of occupation of the Palestinian territories, as well as to become more active and involved in seeking a peaceful and just resolution of the Israel-Palestine conflict.
