White flags representing lives lost, a Palestine flag, and a banner stating “ceasefire now” were placed across the main quad of Wake Forest last night, February 4th.
The Office of Communications and External Relations emailed Wake Forest students and faculty this morning, noting that the signs and flags were a “violation of University policies.”
There is no official statement from the University regarding the banner’s content or flag’s meaning.
An anonymous organizer spoke to the Old Gold and Black stating, “the demonstration is meant to burst the luxurious bubble that is Wake Forest University and bring everyone’s attention back to the reality of the world.”
Chalk along the brick path across the main quad stated, “Murderers: 1. The IDF, 2. The U.S. Gov, 3. The Complicit.”
