The Rise of Columbia as a Leading Advocate in Pro-Palestinian Activism

A two-week standoff between pro-Palestinian protesters and Columbia University in New York ended with officials monitoring for potential further protests across college campuses. The protesters occupied an academic building after a deadline set by the university passed. This followed criticism of the university president for not addressing concerns of antisemitism. The situation escalated with multiple arrests, leading to protests at other universities nationwide. President Biden addressed the issue, condemning antisemitic protests. Columbia ultimately suspended students defying orders and had them removed by police. Protests continued at other campuses, leading to various clashes and actions by law enforcement to disband them.
