Live updates: Columbia University president under threat of censure as nationwide campus protests escalate

Pro-Palestine protesters have occupied Columbia University’s lawn, prompting the university senate to call for an investigation into President Minouche Shafik and her administration. The resolution accuses the administration of violating protocols, undermining academic freedom, and breaching due process rights. Students protested the Israel-Gaza war but were dispersed by the NYPD, leading to over 100 arrests. The protests have sparked similar events across the US and worldwide, including in Paris. Elsewhere, Emory University experienced violent police crackdowns, with over 500 students arrested, leading to the cancellation of the main commencement ceremony. The Georgia Attorney General praised the crackdowns as a defense of student safety.
