Hebrew University cracks down on Palestinian demos

Oct. 3, 2014 1:03 P.M. (Updated: Oct. 5, 2014 1:07 P.M.)
JERUSALEM (Ma'an) -- The Hebrew University in Jerusalem has referred 12 Palestinian students to "obedience committees" for organizing student demonstrations throughout the year, the students' movement said.

The university claims that the 12 students violated university laws by organizing "illegal demonstrations" on the campus.

The students' movement said that the students were only "exercising their natural rights; including the right of expression and right to demonstrate."

The administration has failed to intimidate students, the group said.

"The solution is to organize student movements inside the campus and give them enough space to express their opinion. The administration keeps searching for new ways of suppression."

"This cause includes all Arab students and we will not allow the administration to make any student pay for it on his/her own," a statement added.

The request to send the Palestinian students in front of a committee was submitted by the dean of students, Udi Shavit.
