Largest Canadian students' union joins boycott of Israel

The Canadian Federation of Students - Ontario, the largest student union in Canada, has decided to boycott Israel because of its ongoing aggression towards Gaza.

The decision was made unanimously by the participants of the union's General Assembly meeting which was held at the Ryerson University, Toronto, and affects all 300,000 members.

Anna Goldfinch, a member of the union's Board of Directors, said the decision to include the boycott of Israel, divestment and the application of sanctions was taken to show solidarity with the Palestinian people.

The President of the Students Union of the University of Ryerson, Rajean Hoilett said Israel had committed war crimes against the Palestinian people, and the Canadian universities that maintain relations with Israel also engage in war crimes.
