CSG President Ben Gerstein apologizes for 2017 comments on Palestine

Multicultural organizations at the University called for Ben Gerstein, president of Central Student Government and Public Policy junior, to apologize for remarks he made in a video and article about Palestine while in high school.

After a social media statement made by Students Allied for Freedom and Equality demanding public apologies from both Gerstein and CSG, Gerstein issued a statement on his personal Facebook page Wednesday afternoon apologizing for any harm caused and saying he no longer holds the views conveyed in the video.
