Portland State library standoff continues into third day; campus remains closed

Conflicting reports emerged about negotiations at Portland State University’s library with pro-Palestinian demonstrators. The campus remains closed for a second day, as negotiators offered students a deal to leave the library without facing criminal charges, but it’s unclear if anyone agreed. Police estimated 50-75 people in the library may need a student ID. Protesters dispute university negotiators’ promises and have vowed to stay until demands are met. Other universities in Oregon have also seen protests. The standoff at Portland State is part of a wave of student activism on the Israel-Hamas conflict, with similar conflicts at universities across the country.
