Columbia protesters allege threat of National Guard troop request by Palestinians

A pro-Palestinian group at Columbia University claims the school threatened to bring in National Guard troops and NYPD officers to break up their encampment on campus. The university president set a midnight deadline for demonstrators to reach an agreement with school administrators, citing safety concerns and disruptions to campus life. The group broke off talks, refusing to return until the threats were rescinded. Demonstrators began taking down tents as the situation remained unresolved. Students describe feeling disheartened by the protests, impacting their ability to focus on exams. Mayor Eric Adams commended the NYPD’s response while former Mayor Rudy Giuliani condemned the demonstrators. The semester at Columbia is described as heartbreaking, with tensions continuing to rise on campus.
