Hundreds of anti-Israel protesters became violent when they tried, unsuccessfully, to shut down a York University event featuring IDF reservists.

Close to 200 people participated in an event featuring IDF reservists on Wednesday night at York University in Toronto despite an attempt by hundreds of violent anti-Israel activists to close it down.

During the presentation, as seen in the first video below, the door was locked, and police, as well as members of JDL-Canada, stood guard while demonstrators continued to chant slogans and bang on the doors. A number of them had managed to enter but were removed by police when they began disrupting the event.

The protests, organized by campus group Students Against Israeli Apartheid, turned violent, as seen in the second video.
