Clashes break out during competing protests at UCLA

Pro-Palestinian protesters at UCLA faced off against pro-Israeli protesters who attempted to dismantle the encampment. The pro-Israeli group deployed fireworks and possibly bear spray, leading to clashes and injuries. Police briefly showed up but left the scene, as tensions remained high between the groups. The pro-Palestinian protesters demanded divestment from Israel and an end to the conflict with Hamas. The demonstrations at UCLA were mostly peaceful, with some disruptions reported. University officials closed some buildings and warned of disciplinary action for those involved in the protests. At USC, a similar protest in Alumni Park led to clashes with police. Students expressed support for free speech but opposed violence from either side.
