Watch this inspirational film by Beatriz Lozano documenting how Students Allied for Freedom and Equality (SAFE) activists at University of Michigan refused to let go, and with the support of hundreds of allies from dozens of student organizations across their campus galvanized student support and “changed the game” during their week-long sit-in, and proposal of a resolution to the U-M Central Student Government urging their university to divest from socially irresponsible companies complicit in violations of Palestinian human rights. The event captivated activists across the nation which will result, ultimately, in a victory for Palestine and activism on campus. Some truly moving footage.

I knew a storm was coming, I knew the emotion would change into action that would change the face of activism on this campus for years to come.
