Dozens of pro-Palestinian protesters arrested by UT campus police following encampment establishment

Police at the University of Texas arrested 43 protesters at a pro-Palestinian demonstration where tents were being set up on campus. The university and Travis County did not confirm the total number arrested. Pro-Palestinian protesters chanted slogans like “free, free Palestine” while setting up tents. Officials warned of arrests for trying to occupy campus. State troopers arrived in riot gear, and after repeated warnings, dismantled the encampment. Some students believed law enforcement’s response was excessive, and that this protest was different. Across the country, pro-Palestinian protests on college campuses demand a ceasefire in Gaza and divestment from weapon-making companies.
