NAT117 – (Ont-UofT-Encampment)
TORONTO. x–15s. The University of Toronto is taking steps to bring an end to a pro-Palestinian encampment set up earlier this month. Students set up the encampment on May 2nd to call on the university to cut its ties with Israel over the ongoing war in Gaza. University President Meric Gertler says the university won’t end any partnerships with Israeli universities as protesters have demanded. But it will form a working group to consider options for the disclosure and increased transparency of its investments.

TAG: Gertler says the offer, which also includes students getting an opportunity to present their demands on divestment, is conditional on the encampment clearing and not resuming at any campus of the university.
