Students posted an announcement to social media after the encampment had been formed on April 29:

USF STUDENTS have come together to join the international student movement, and demand USF to uphold its own mission statement and address the genocide against Palestinians in Gaza. We join our national student call and escalate our protests to pressure our academic institutions to divest from genocide. Our universities owe the student body transparency and accountability.

We demand an end to the financial, political, cultural, and academic support for Israeli genocide and crimes against humanity. We demand this from our universities, places of work, consumer enterprises, and government. We stand in solidarity with the Palestinians as they fight for their liberation from Israeli, American, and Western oppression.
