‘We’re going after them’: Activists targeting university presidents after Jewish genocide testimony
WASHINGTON (TND) — Media advocacy group Accuracy in Media (AIM) has launched a new initiative to hold the presidents of several elite universities accountable for their testimonies to Congress earlier this week.
In October, AIM sent truck-mounted billboards to campuses across the Ivy League, like Harvard University, the University of Pennsylvania and Columbia University, to hold administrators and students responsible for anti-Israel and antisemitic rhetoric.
In an interview with The National Desk (TND) Friday, AIM President Adam Guillette said this week’s congressional testimony from the presidents of Harvard, UPenn and MIT made it clear his efforts are needed now more than ever.
Now that it’s clear that the presidents of these universities are perfectly happy for antisemitism to proliferate on their campus, we’re going after them as well,” Guillette said.
He explained AIM has been fighting to mobilize students on each campus to demand their presidents be held accountable.
