‘Bloodied’ Israeli Flag Prominently Featured at U of Illinois Anti-Trump Rally


Footage posted on social media from the “Muslim Immigration and Refugee Ban Solidarity March” at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign (UIUC) on Monday shows students holding up the flag, which is covered in red hand prints, simulating blood.

A female student wearing a hijab is seen yelling into a megaphone against past and current US administrations for being “complacent” against “state violence” and for “not listening” to the concerns of minorities. Students are also seen holding an American flag upside down.

The demonstration was co-sponsored by a number of UIUC groups, including the school’s chapter of Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP) and Muslim Student Association (MSA)
