A student who conducted the opening ceremony for the York Federation of Students event wore a shirt emblazoned with the phrase, “Anti-Zionist vibes only.”
The Multicultural Week event advertises itself as “a chance for students, faculty and staff to celebrate their cultures and embrace the diversity of the York Community.”
The York University Hillel said in a Facebook post, “This is just another example of the combative and discriminatory environment the YFS has created for Jewish and Zionist students, especially in the last few months.”
“This is not a valid critique of Israeli policies or actions,” the organization stated. “It is a rebuke of the national movement for Jewish self-determination which, in effect, is anti-Semitic.”
The York Hillel condemned the “anti-Semitic act” and noted that it was especially disturbing as it took place on International Holocaust Remembrance Day. It demanded an apology from the Federation of Students.
