Anti-Israel activists are planning a “Citywide Day of Rage for Gaza” at Columbia University and Hunter College in New York City on Monday,

The Columbia University event, scheduled to start at 4 p.m. local time at the cross streets of Columbia’s Morningside campus, was planned by Columbia University Apartheid Divest, which describes itself as a coalition of nearly 100 student groups “that see Palestine as the vanguard for our collective liberation” and a “continuation of the Vietnam anti-war movement.”

The coalition announced the event before Columbia said Monday that it would cancel its university-wide commencement ceremony.

The event at Hunter College, part of the City University of New York system, is scheduled for 5 p.m. at cross streets outside of the Upper East Side school. That event is being planned by Within Our Lifetime, an anti-Zionist group that says it supports “the right of Palestinians as colonized people to resist the zionist occupation by any means necessary,” as well as “the right of all oppressed nationality people in the United States and around the world to engage in all forms of struggle.”

The Within Our Lifetime flyer describes the event as a “CITYWIDE DAY OF RAGE FOR GAZA: From The Encampments To The Streets,” referring to the “Gaza Solidarity Encampment” that started at Columbia and sparked similar protest camps at schools nationwide.

Neither the public safety office at Hunter nor the one at Columbia have issued any public alerts or warnings specifically in response to the event. However, Columbia’s Morningside Campus access has been restricted to essential workers and students who live on campus in response to the protests.

The New York Police Department, Columbia University Public Safety Office and Hunter College Public Safety Office did not respond to Just the News’ requests for comment.

The Liberty Beacon Project is now expanding at a near exponential rate, and for this we are grateful and excited! But we must also be practical. For 7 years we have not asked for any donations, and have built this project with our own funds as we grew. We are now experiencing ever increasing growing pains due to the large number of websites and projects we represent. So we have just installed donation buttons on our websites and ask that you consider this when you visit them. Nothing is too small. We thank you for all your support and your considerations … (TLB)
