Student demonstrators erected a narrow wall near the northern entrance of Frist Campus Center April 8 to protest the barriers and checkpoints that Israel has constructed in the West Bank. Protesters collected signatures on two petitions: one urging the Israeli government to release Palestinian prisoners, and another demanding that the U.S. government cut off military aid to Israel.

The demonstration was supported by two campus organizations, the Princeton chapter of Amnesty International and the Princeton Committee on Palestine, and one non-University group, the Princeton Middle East Society. By Giri Nathan ’13
