Northwestern University reaches agreement with pro-Palestinian demonstrators

Northwestern University has agreed to the demands of a group of Palestinian protesters who have been camping out on campus calling for divestment from Israel. The protesters will be allowed to continue their demonstration through the end of the school year, but with restrictions. The university will establish a committee to engage with students regarding divestment issues. Despite the agreement, some protesters feel blindsided and have criticized the decision. The university also warned that disciplinary action will be taken against any demonstrators who do not comply with the agreement. The Anti-Defamation League condemned the agreement, accusing the protesters of spreading antisemitism. Other universities, such as Columbia and the University of Chicago, have also faced tensions surrounding pro-Palestinian protests.
