Tulane and Loyola Students for a Democratic Society have come together for a pro-Palestine encampment on Tulane’s front lawn along St. Charles Avenue. The protest began with a march throughout the neighborhood. At this time, six students have been arrested and released.

Loyola SDS demands Loyola University to:

  • ensure support for affected students
  • release a public statement acknowledging the pro-Palestine movement
  • increase funding for the new director of multicultural affairs to advocate for minority students
  • divest from Israeli corporations, corporations that support Israel
  • disclose the annual investments of its endowment.

Tulane SDS demands Tulane University to:

  • divest from Israel corporations
  • disclose the annual investments of endowment
  • cut ties with Israeli universities, including canceling birthright trips
  • urge a cease resolution by the city council of New Orleans
  • offer support to Arab and Palestinian students.

A counter protest in support of Israel formed across St. Charles Avenue.
