Protests in Support of Palestinians Gain Momentum at US Colleges After Arrests at Columbia

Several prestigious U.S. universities faced tensions on Monday over Israel’s war with Hamas, resulting in Columbia canceling in-person classes and multiple arrests at Yale. Pro-Palestinian demonstrators have set up encampments on various campuses, demanding condemnation of Israel’s actions and divestment from weapon-selling companies. This has led to conflicts among students, with some Jewish students feeling unsafe due to perceived antisemitism. Columbia has faced criticism, leading to protests and calls for University President Minouche Shafik to resign. Protests have also occurred at MIT and Harvard, while Yale arrested protesters and USC canceled a valedictorian’s speech for supporting Palestinians.
