Ohio State University Student Threatens Violence As BDS Vote Looms

March 23rd, 2016

Cailin Pitt – a member of the #OSUDivest group and a Resident Advisor on campus – posted a tweet threatening the lives of student government members who oppose the looming “Boycott, Divest and Sanction” resolution being considered by Ohio State’s Student Government on March 23.

The tweet has since been deleted, but is one more example of the violent tactics used by #OSUDivest supporters, including OSU’s Committee for Justice in Palestine.

This is unacceptable. Call on OSU administrators to condemn these remarks, and urge your student government members not to be swayed by these scare tactics.
