    • Students and staff at the University of Michigan, as well as members from the local community, staged a silent walk-out last week when two IDF soldiers visited campus as part of an Israeli public relations effort. The protest was in memory and in solidarity with all of the silenced Palestinian children that were killed by the IDF during Israel’s most recent offensive on the Gaza Strip.
    • More than 200 people — led by environmental activist Erin Brockovich — marched to Shell’s oil refinery in Carson, CA on Saturday to protest the company’s refusal to take responsibility for the contamination of a tract in the Carousel neighborhood, where high levels of benzene and methane have been found in the ground.
