A group of about 30 demonstrators — led by Cornell Students for Justice in Palestine — took to Ho Plaza Friday afternoon to protest Israeli actions in Gaza and issue a call to action for the University.

“Israel control[s] Gaza’s borders, airspace, waterways, population registry, currency and electrical and water supplies,” said Abu Yusif Habib ’15 in a speech criticizing Israel’s occupation of Gaza since 1967.
