What do pro-Palestinian student protesters want?

What do pro-Palestinian student protesters want?

Dozens of college campuses across the US have been taken over by students protesting against the war in Gaza.

Since the 7 October attack by Hamas and Israel's retaliatory assault, students have launched rallies, sit-ins, hunger strikes and, most recently, encampments against the war.

They are demanding that their schools, many with massive endowments, financially divest from Israel.

Divestment means to sell off stock in Israeli companies, or to otherwise drop financial ties.

Student activists say that companies doing business in Israel, or with Israeli organisations, are complicit in its ongoing war in Gaza - as are colleges investing in those companies.
