Anti-Israel protesters set up encampment on McGill University campus

'I met some Jewish students that said to me that since October 7th, they don't feel safe on the campus. They've been followed, they've been harassed, they've been threatened,' explained Alexa Lavoie.

On last night's episode of The Ezra Levant Show, guest host Sheila Gunn Reid spoke with Rebel News' Alexa Lavoie about the anti-Israel demonstrations taking place at McGill University.

Protesters have constructed an encampment featuring a significant number of tents near the centre of the Montreal university's campus.

The demonstrators claim that the protest is "indefinite" and are calling on the university to divest from funds linked to Israel.

Speaking about McGill's response to the protests, Alexa said, "McGill issued a statement to their students saying that they are looking into removing the tents."

"They are speaking with lawyers right now because since the beginning [of the protests] on Saturday, the number of tents has apparently tripled. So they are not really happy with all of this," she said.

Alexa went on to say, "Imagine being a Jewish student arriving on their campus where they go to school, and being surrounded by people who are fully masked, chanting some antisemitic slogan."

McGill isn't the only university in Canada featuring an anti-Israel "tent city." As Ezra Levant reported, protesters at the University of British Columbia have also set up an encampment.

Anti-Israel protests have erupted across university campuses in the U.S. and Canada in recent weeks, with police being called in to quell a number of illegal demonstrations south of the border.
