University of California, Irvine adds to the round of walkouts! On March 1, StandWithUs sent two Israeli soldiers to UC Irvine’s campus to whitewash Israel’s war crimes during the 2008-2009 invasion of Gaza. A large and diverse group of students attended the event and, with signs and chants taped to their shirts, silently walked out soon after the hasbara program began.
This marked the second walkout by students in California in just one week. Pro-Israel campus groups are appearing both uncreative and helpless as they seek to challenge a growing campus awareness of the Palestinian narrative with propaganda events attempting to justify Israel’s role in occupying and invading Palestinian territory.
