Two department at the University of Massachusetts-Amherst are co-sponsoring a pro-Palestinian event on their campus. The Department of Communications and the Department of Women, Gender & Sexuality Studies are the sponsors of the event, “Not Backing Down.” One of the speakers is Linda Sarsour, a pro-Palestinian protester and co-founder of the anti-Trump Women’s March. A group of students is suing the university over the event and its propaganda, to which the university said that a department sponsorship does not necessarily mean that they endorse the speakers’ views.
