Protests on college campuses lead to mounting tensions nationwide

State troopers in riot gear, including some on horseback, broke up a pro-Palestinian protest at the University of Texas at Austin. The protest was organized by the Palestine Solidarity Committee, encouraging students to bring supplies and energy. Students gathered on campus, but were quickly ordered to disperse by law enforcement forming blockades. “Tense interactions” and “physical struggles” between police and students were seen, with some arrests captured on film. The large law enforcement presence surprised students, leading to speculation about the response. No official comments have been made by the Texas Department of Public Safety, University of Texas, or Austin Police.
