Columbia Students Refuse to Disband Pro-Palestinian Encampment Despite Deadline

New York City’s Columbia University has begun suspending students involved in a pro-Palestinian protest after they ignored a deadline to disband. Similar protests at other universities across the US have led to arrests and tensions. Pressure on Columbia’s leadership, including President Nemat Shafik, has been mounting, with calls for resignations over safety concerns amidst accusations of antisemitism. Demonstrators are demanding divestment from Israel and a ceasefire in the Israel-Gaza conflict. The university is facing challenges in handling the protests as students continue to defy orders and protests spread to campuses in at least 22 other states.
