What We Know About the Arrest of Over 30 Pro-Palestine Protesters at Ohio State

Ohio State University police and the Ohio State Highway Patrol arrested 36 people for holding a pro-Palestine encampment on campus, which is the largest number of protest-related arrests at the university since the Vietnam War. The protesters wanted the university to disclose and divest its investments in Israeli companies due to the conflict in Gaza. The arrests were made because the protesters violated rules prohibiting camping, overnight events, and disruption of university business. This level of law enforcement response was deemed unnecessary by many, including a student with family in Gaza. The arrests were the most significant at OSU in over 50 years, with previous mass arrests linked to civil rights and anti-war protests.
