Governor Youngkin responds to pro-Palestine demonstrations at Virginia universities

College campuses nationwide have seen pro-Palestinian demonstrations in response to the conflict between Hamas and Israel. Demonstrators are calling for solidarity with Gaza and a ceasefire after many Palestinians have died due to Israeli airstrikes. Governor Glenn Youngkin of Virginia expressed concern over protests in the state, noting incidents of violence and disruptions on college campuses. A recent protest at Virginia Commonwealth University (VCU) led to police intervention as protesters set up a “Liberation Zone” and called for divestment from Israel. Demonstrations are also planned at Christopher Newport University, emphasizing safety as a priority.
