The situation across various university campuses in the United States seems to be escalating as clashes erupt between pro-Palestinian demonstrators and counterprotesters. In New York, the NYPD arrested around 300 protesters at Columbia University and the City College of New York, responding to requests from university leaders. Charges against the arrested individuals include trespassing and criminal mischief. This adds to the tally of over 1,600 people arrested in pro-Palestine campus protests nationwide over the past two weeks.

Meanwhile, in Los Angeles, police were called to UCLA after tensions flared between pro-Palestinian demonstrators and counterprotesters. The LAPD reported “multiple acts of violence” within the campus encampment.

At the University of Wisconsin, police withdrew from the library mall area after dismantling an encampment and detaining some pro-Palestine protesters. The crowd chanted slogans in support of Palestine as police in riot gear left the scene.

These incidents reflect the deeply entrenched divisions and heightened emotions surrounding the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, which continue to manifest on college campuses across the United States.
