The University of Guelph has issued a trespass notice to protesters at an anti-Israel encampment set up on the school's campus more than a month ago.

In a written statement to The Canadian Press, the university said it handed out the warnings after protesters refused to comply with a demand to dismantle the camp by Sunday night.

Should the protesters remain on site, school officials said the university would then seek an injunction against the demonstration. In Toronto, a similar court injunction saw protesters finally shutter a longstanding anti-Israel encampment on campus before police took action.

Posting on social media, Guelph protesters say they are facing legal action and a 24-hour deadline to depart, reports The Canadian Press.

Nearby, at the University of Waterloo, protesters ended an encampment on Sunday night after the school sought damages against the demonstrators through a lawsuit.

“[W]e have become increasingly alarmed that the encampment now provides a centrally surveilled space where the university will continue to enact its aggression, targeting student activism and activists on campus,” the Waterloo anti-Israel protesters claimed before the encampment shut, as reported by Global News.
