JVP organizers say they staunchly support ending the Israeli occupation of Palestine

On this edition of Your Call, we hear from a physician who has recently returned from an aid mission to Gaza and discuss how university leadership is responding to campus protests calling for an end to the US-backed Israeli assault.

The death toll in Gaza has surpassed 35,000. Israel is deploying more troops into Rafah as the International Court of Justice holds hearings on South Africa's petition that Israel withdraw military forces from the southern Gaza Strip.

Student protestors across the country continue their calls for a ceasefire and for their universities to divest from Israeli companies. The New York Times reports that more than 2,800 people have been arrested or detained in relation to these campus protests.
