Have Something To Say ?

    The crime in Oakland, CA is getting out of control, particularly in the downtown area, and people are getting mugged in the broad-day light. What measures do we have in place to protect the employees who have to leave the building in order to get to their mode of transportation?

    After the horrifying attack on Israeli civilians by Hamas, President Drake and Regent Chair Leib issued a statement condemning the violence and expressing grief over the loss of innocent lives and the abduction of innocent hostages, including children and the elderly. Since that statement, Israeli forces have retaliated in Gaza and current estimates indicate over 3,500 Palestinians have been killed, including children and the elderly. Multiple news outlets have reported that Israeli forces have bombed schools, hospitals, and mosques in Gaza.

    Does President Drake plan to issue a statement on the horrible atrocities that Israeli forces are conducting in Gaza? What considerations does President Drake make when speaking on behalf of the UC community about these types of global events? I am concerned about the selective condemnation from the University and the deafening silence about the current situation is Gaza.

    We owe the same moral responsibility to Palestinian children/civilians as we do Israeli children/civilians. Condemning the Israeli government is not antisemitic and supporting Palestinians is not supporting Hamas. If you care about human life only in Israel or only in Gaza, then you don’t actually care about human life.
