Tensions escalate as pro-Palestinian protests create standoffs between students and universities

Columbia University has made progress with pro-Palestinian student protesters, extending a deadline for clearing out tent encampments while smaller demonstrations take place at California State Polytechnic University. Both protests are part of a broader movement demanding schools cut financial ties with Israel due to its conflict with Hamas. Columbia President set a deadline for students to clear the encampment, but after constructive dialogue, this was extended. Demonstrations have led to arrests and concerns over balancing free speech rights with safety. Protests continue at universities across the country, with calls for accountability and a respect for individual rights.
