USF students continue hunger strike, university not budging

Students at the University of South Florida are 12 days into a hunger strike and it is taking its toll.

The students are demanding the university divest from companies they believe are enabling the Israel-Hamas conflict. The demonstration has continued, despite an order from the university’s president, calling on them to cease and desist.

Originally, 18 people were participating in the hunger strike. Now, only five remain. Those students have been starving themselves for nearly two weeks.
