The Desires of Pro-Palestinian Student Demonstrators

Last week, students at Columbia University set up an encampment on the campus green to protest Israel’s war in Gaza, sparking a national mobilization of student activists. Encampments and demonstrations at over 50 other colleges have erupted against the Israeli offensive, with protests calling for divestment from companies linked to Israel. Students are demanding transparency on their colleges’ financial ties to Israel, severing academic ties, denouncing genocide, and supporting a cease-fire. Some colleges have refused these demands, leading to peaceful protests being met with harsh crackdowns and arrests on campuses. Pro-Palestine student groups are emphasizing the importance of valuing every human life and speaking out against antisemitism. Students remain committed to advocating for Palestine despite obstacles.
