On the wall

On Monday, April 22, Kenyon Students for Justice in Palestine (KSJP) constructed a large wall as an installation piece on Middle Path to draw attention to what it called “the illegal Separation Wall in Palestine-Israel and the larger system of Israeli apartheid of which it is a part,” according to a Student-Info email sent by KSJP. This is the second year this installation has been up.  KSJP member Sewar Quran ’17 said she wants students to “think about the difficulties, danger and oppression that the wall presents to many Palestinians.”  Since the wall appeared on Middle Path, several professors engaged in a discussion in all-student emails. The conversations have also continued among student groups, including KSJP and Kenyon Students for Israel.
