Boston’s Northeastern University has suspended the on-campus Students
for Justice in Palestine and launched police investigations into students.
The administration also threatened two students with suspension or expulsion
for distributing mock eviction leaflets on campus, a popular direct
action many Palestine solidarity groups undertake during the annual
Israeli Apartheid Week of events. The two SJP members who were threatened
with expulsion-level charges are the only women of color in the group
that distributed the leaflets.

Students say the explicit threats of expulsion of the two women has
apparently been rescinded due to the outpouring of pressure by SJP activists
and supporters of free speech around the country.
