Palestinian flag raised at Marquette University

Palestinian flag raised at Marquette University

The Palestinian flag was raised in Marquette University’s Alumni Memorial Union after Students for Justice in Palestine asked the administration to do so.

The Palestinian flag was raised in Marquette University’s Alumni Memorial Union after Students for Justice in Palestine asked the administration to do so.

The following article was written by Students for Justice in Palestine at Marquette

When you first walk into Marquette University’s Alumni Memorial Union, the first thing you notice is the diverse collection of the world’s flags hanging above. The flags’ purpose is to bring together and unify the spirits of the students, staff and faculty on the university’s campus. It did not take long for Marquette’s Palestinian students to notice that the Palestinian flag was missing.

Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP) at Marquette took it upon itself to reach out to the administration in hopes of seeing the Palestinian flag amongst the other flags of the world. Our administration was approached last spring and we were fortunate enough to have the Vice President of Student Affairs behind us. Although we had his support, it did take about a full year for administration to follow through with their promise of adding the Palestinian flag to the collection. With the continuous lack of recognition of Palestine around the world, concerned students thought it was important for the university to not only recognize the presence of Palestinian students on campus, but to broaden their views and recognize the state of Palestine within our world as well, the very state that these students have roots from.

SJP Marquette is proud to announce that the Palestinian flag has now joined the diverse pool of flags within the Union. Upon the announcement of the addition of our flag, we have been shown a great amount of support and solidarity from many student groups on campus, displaying nothing but positive feedback on our social media accounts. Such a milestone has come to show that what appears to be the simplest of victories can in turn display an immense amount of solidarity and an immense amount of pride, that stems from a generation willing to go the extra mile to ensure the preservation of their identity.
