Rutgers EJC Protest in Solidarity with Silismar Suriel, Feb 2, 2024

The Rutgers Endowment Justice Collective (EJC) held an emergency protest on Friday, 2/2/24 in solidarity with Silismar Suriel, who was removed from running the Center for Latino Arts and Culture’s Instagram page after she reposted a pro-Palestinian article. EJC writes that Silismar “has been curating this page for more than 12 years with no compensation. This [removal] is evidence of yet another instance in which the Rutgers administration is silencing pro-Palestinian students and faculty. The silencing and oppression done on this campus reaches all marginalized communities and faculty. When you silence one, you silence us all.”
