Police raid on Columbia protests sparked a campus movement in Gaza

At Columbia University, a small group of students protested against Israeli military action in Gaza, leading to the arrest of over 100 students by the NYPD. This sparked protests at universities across the US, with students calling for divestment from companies supporting the war. However, concerns about safety and antisemitism have been raised, leading some university officials to call in police. Despite this, protesters believe heavy-handed police tactics will only strengthen their movement. Some see these protests as reminiscent of the Vietnam War demonstrations, and believe they will have a lasting impact on US attitudes towards the conflict.
