US universities building overtaken by Pro-Palestinian protesters

Dozens of protesters have occupied a building at Columbia University in New York with the Palestinian flag, in solidarity with Palestine. Video footage showed protesters locking arms in front of Hamilton Hall carrying furniture. Universities in the US are struggling with how to handle the protests as commencement ceremonies are approaching. Some Jewish students feel the protests are veering into anti-Semitism. Dozens of people were arrested in protests at universities in Texas, Utah, and Virginia. The handling of the protests at Columbia has led to federal complaints, with Jewish students alleging a breach of contract and pro-Palestinian students urging an investigation by the US Department of Education’s civil rights office.
