Student Encampments Resist for Palestine


Palestine solidarity student activism encampments Columbia Yale Gaza genocide New York police arrests repression academia protests

Student protests in solidarity with Palestine have set up protests and encampments on campuses across the country from Columbia, NYU and the New School in New York to Berkeley, Stanford and Cal Poly Humboldt in California. Students are demanding that their universities - many of them among the most elite in the country with giant endowments - divest from weapons manufacturers and Israeli companies. They’re being met with fierce repression by police, but along with solidarity from faculty and supporters in their cities, the movement is continuing and growing.

Chris and Rachel have been on the ground at Yale and Columbia and talk about their experiences and what this means for the movement.
