Students protest for Palestine in the street

Dozens of students from Loyola and Tulane took the streets and protested the Israel-Palestine war in support of Palestine. 

Loyola’s chapter of Students for a Democratic Society partnered with other local organizations to make this protest happen.

There was no violence that took place during or after the protest. According to chief Todd Warren, The Loyola Police teamed up with Tulane and New Orleans Police to ensure everyone was safe. 

According to the Loyola SDS Instagram, the goal of the protest was to call Loyola University to “cut ties” with Israel, voice support for Palestine, and drop misconduct charges on student protesters for the October 26th protest on Freret street.

    To the Loyola community,

    We received the critical feedback on our video covering the protest for Palestine yesterday.

    While the headline was written in accordance with Associated Press style guidelines, we recognize the need to carefully evaluate our word choice. We must continue to reflect on potential bias of standardized language.

    The Maroon is an outlet for student voices. We welcome your perspectives through our publication and on our channels. Thank you for pushing us to evaluate our news coverage and speaking on what you stand for.

    These students need to be held accountable for their actions. Also learn history before demanding Loyola “cut ties “ with Israel .

    This is not “the latest war between Israel and Palestine.” It’s a genocide. I don’t appreciate seeing euphemistic and coded language like this in my school newspaper. You can and should hold yourselves to a higher standard.
