Police called to college campuses for Palestinian demonstrations

The University of Southern California canceled its main stage graduation ceremony due to protests related to the Israel-Hamas war. Over 90 protesters were arrested on USC’s campus. Similar police intervention occurred at colleges nationwide. USC will still host individual school commencement ceremonies. Safety concerns led to the cancellation of a pro-Palestinian valedictorian’s speech. Students are protesting schools’ financial ties to Israel. Scuffles with police and arrests occurred at Emerson College and USC. Police presence at demonstrations faced criticism, and some schools faced ongoing protests. The current wave of protests is linked to actions at Columbia University.
