At the Université de Sherbrooke (UdeS), students have established a pro-Palestinian encampment, joining similar movements at McGill University and the Université du Québec à Montréal (UQAM).

The encampment features around a dozen tents set up May 13 in front of the university’s multifunctional pavilion.

The group organizing the encampment, Solidarité pour les droits humains des Palestiniens – Université de Sherbrooke (SDHP Sherbrooke), announced the action on Instagram.

They called for public condemnation of what they describe as genocide in Palestine and called for the support of other student movements, a denouncement of Canada’s alleged complicity, cessation of arms sales to the region, and full disclosure of related investments.

The Record contacted the UdeS communications team and its student association for comment but did not hear back before press time.
