Pro-Palestinian protesters harassed Jewish students in Birmingham University

British-Jewish student groups raised concern about their safety at the University of Birmingham after anti-Israel protesters raised banners calling for “Zionists off our campus.”

The Union of Jewish Students and Birmingham Jewish Society said that the protest protesters harassed Jewish students and called for “death to Zionists.”

“We’re scared and we’re heartbroken,” the groups said in a joint statement. “This antisemitic hatred has been allowed to fester on our campus for too long. The University of Birmingham must take action now.”
