Brooklyn College protesters demand ‘Zionists out’

Student protesters broke into a Brooklyn College faculty meeting on Tuesday, issuing demands and verbally abusing staff members.

One faculty member who spoke to the JTA on condition of anonymity described the protest’s anti-Semitic rhetoric.

Protesters called a Jewish professor present at the meeting a “Zionist pig” and demanded that the school throw “Zionists off campus”. Other demands included an end to unspecified “racist” classes and wage hikes for teachers.

State Assemblyman Dov Hikind condemned the protesters, calling the incident an “absolute disgrace”. 

Hikind demanded that CUNY take action to stop similar acts of “intimidation and disruption”.
