Pro-Palestinian campus protests turn violent

Groups of protesters clashed at UCLA, Columbia, and the University of Arizona over pro-Palestinian and pro-Israeli views, leading to arrests and confrontations with police. Tent encampments calling for divestment from Israel have spread across the US, with crackdowns on some campuses reminiscent of the Vietnam War era. The clashes at UCLA involved barricades and sticks, resulting in injuries. Similar protests occurred at Brown University, City College of New York, and University of Wisconsin. President Biden condemned the actions, while former President Trump praised police intervention. The protests stemmed from Israel’s offensive in Gaza, with critics labeling them antisemitic.
