Social media accounts on Instagram and X, formerly known as Twitter, doxxed UC Santa Barbara MultiCultural Center’s student interns and staff, posting their personal information online. This follows pro-Palestine student activists posting signs at the Center on Feb. 26, expressing solidarity with Palestine and dissenting against university administration, Associated Students President Tessa Veksler and Zionism. 

UC Santa Barbara temporarily suspended the MultiCultural Center (MCC) following the posting of signage. UCSB student activist groups Students for Justice in Palestine and Jewish Voice for Peace confirmed their lack of involvement with the incidents in a statement published on Wednesday. 

On the platform X the account @StopAntisemites posted an image of the staff page of the MCC with staffers’ full names and emails listed. The MCC staff page has now been taken down. The Nexus will not be linking the post to protect the identities of the staff listed.

On Instagram, in a now-deleted post, the account @IsraelWarRoom posted images along with names, majors and campus positions of the Multicultural Center’s Jackson Scholars Interns, including a poster from Monday signed “With love, Jackson Interns + MCC Student Staff.” 

Veksler follows @IsraelWarRoom as of Thursday, Feb. 29. 

Veksler commented asking the account to remove the post and denounced the doxxing in an Instagram story post. 

“Doxxing is wrong, it is harmful, it goes completely against the principles of restorative justice and endangers marginalized communities,” Veksler said in a statement to the Nexus.

Veksler additionally stated she hasn’t yet contacted the individuals identified in the post, as she was focused on getting the posts removed.

University administration did not immediately respond for comment.
