York Federation of Students Condemns York University Administration

The York Federation of Students (YFS), York University's undergraduate students' union, has passed a motion condemning the York University administration for sanctioning SAIA.

"Be it resolved that the YFS executive committee condemn the unwarranted and unjust measures taken by the York University administration to revoke the student club status of Students Against Israeli Apartheid at York University and to ban York University alumnus, Hammam Farah, from the campus by invoking sections 3(1) and 5(1) of the Trespass to Property Act. 

These extraordinary actions are contrary to the principles of Academic Freedom and Freedom of Speech. The executive committee of the YFS urges VP Students, Janet Morrison, to reverse these decisions and to work with the YFS and other campus and community groups and organizations to ensure that Academic Freedom and Freedom of Speech are respected by the York University administration in the future."
