In response to inquiries regarding the removal of SJP, its clear that the mock "eviction notices" were not an isolated event, and rather were yet another in a series of SJP actions that poisoned the campus climate at Northeastern University.
"I am responding to your recent communication about Students for Justice in Palestine at Northeastern University.
The suspension of SJP was handed down only after a careful and thorough
review of the facts. Despite repeated efforts by university officials
to work with the leadership of SJP, the organization has repeatedly
shown a disregard for university policies over an extended period of
time. Contrary to assertions from some
parties, SJP leaders have not been banned permanently from
participation, and the organization has had many opportunities to
discuss its conduct with university officials. Further, reports that
expulsion procedures have been initiated against students affiliated
with SJP are false.
The issue here is not one of free speech or
the exchange of disparate ideas. Instead, it is about holding every
member of our community to the same standards, and addressing SJP’S
non-compliance with longstanding policies to which all student
organizations at Northeastern are required to adhere.
I hope this reply is helpful and sheds light on the relevant facts.

Does anyone still think SJP is a "peace" group? From the Northeastern SJP Instagram page:
The website Americans for Peace and Tolerance has been keeping score of the Northeastern chapter of SJP's transgressions, as well as other anti-Israel and anti-Semitic activities on campus over the years.
