Pro-Palestinian activists barred over campus eviction notices

The Students for Justice in Palestine chapter at Northeastern University was suspended from campus over a campaign that the Boston school said intimidated students. The group vowed to fight the suspension.

Northeastern suspended Students for Justice in Palestine, or SJP, from the campus last week for at least a year and barred its current executive board from serving on any future board in the organization for its campaign distributing mock eviction notices last month to student residences at the university.

The notices were designed to mimic those that appear on illegal Arab construction slated for demolition. Similar campaigns have been used on other campuses.
