About 100 white nationalists marched on the campus carrying tiki torches and chanting Nazi slogans, including “Sieg heil” and “blood and soil” and giving the Nazi salute. There were reports of at least one t-shirt containing a slogan from Adolf Hitler. According to the Chronicle of Higher Education, the white nationalists “were marching through the heart of the campus, out of view of the [University] president’s residence, stomping the ground and chanting, ‘You will not replace us’ and ‘Jews will not replace us.'”

Claremont SJP released a “Statement on Board of Trustees’ Revocation of BDS Bylaw” to the campus community. The statement demonized Israel and reiterated calls for BDS, exclaiming, “we refuse to give legitimacy to the Board’s statement…The actions of the Pitzer Board of Trustees and its absurd desire for “neutrality” serve as an endorsement of the Zionist occupation of Palestine which effectively enable the ethnic cleansing of Palestinians through support of Israeli companies and institutions…we encourage students of the Claremont Colleges to continue to support the BDS movement.”

SUPER and the Student Animal Liberation Coalition co-hosted the event, “Dirty Laundry: Exposing Brand Israel.” The description for the event claimed that “Brand Israel” is an attempt to discredit the BDS movement’s “campaign to end Israeli apartheid,” whose result is “a powerful, militarized, and oppressive colonial nation-state that has been pink-washed, green-washed, and even vegan-washed.” The event also entailed “Learn[ing] how to resist Brand Israel and organize in support of the BDS campaign…[and] stand[ing] in solidarity with PAL as a means of resisting Brand Israel’s campaign of vegan and humane-washing that erroneously paints Israel as the most progressive nation on the planet in terms of animals and veganism as a means of erasing the Palestinian relationship with the land and its animals.”
