Protesters clash with police in riot gear at UCLA campus

Pro-Palestinian demonstrations at Columbia University led to a dramatic end with police making dozens of arrests. The clashes continued at the University of California, Los Angeles where violence broke out between opposing groups. The demonstrations at Columbia were sparked by calls for the university to sever ties with Israel or companies supporting the war in Gaza. The police intervention was prompted after the occupation of Hamilton Hall and a tent encampment, causing disruptions on campus. The protests, inspired by Columbia, have spread to other universities across the U.S., leading to confrontations and arrests. Brown University reached an agreement to consider divestment from Israel in October, marking a shift in how universities are responding to the protests.
