There is an online petition for Ohio State University alumnae, demanding that the use of that campus be denied to the Palestinian Solidarity Movement, "a group that supports terrorism."

Until then, we have work to do. There is apparently still a window of opportunity: While the Solidarity Movement has announced its intention to meet at Ohio State, the University has not yet approved the use of meeting space.
NOW IS THE TIME TO WRITE LETTERS OF PROTEST
