About 200 people gathered Nov. 9 at Klarman Hall in Cornell University at a die-in to protest against genocide and express solidarity with Palestine amid the ongoing Israel-Hamas war that began Oct. 7.

On Nov. 9, Cornell University’s chapter of Students for Justice in Palestine organized a protest and die-in to stand in solidarity with Palestine amid the Israel-Hamas war that began Oct. 7. Students as well as locals attended the die-in and protest, which began outside Klarman Hall and proceeded inside where participants lied on the floor. Participants carried Palestinian flags and handmade signs that condemned war and genocide, while chanting slogans criticizing Cornell’s interaction with the campus community in context of the war.

Participants gathered outside Klarman Hall and entered the hall together. The protest and die-in concluded within an hour and the organizers led participants out of the hall in an orderly manner. (Caleb Kaufman)
