Police Disrupts Pro-Palestinian Demonstration And Arrests 47 Students At Yale, NYU

Police stormed in to break up a pro-Palestinian demonstration at Yale and New York University on Monday, and at least 47 students were detained. The college authorities are worried about the safety of the Jewish community, who are afraid to attend classes as the majority of the students have veered into “antisemitism.”

The university leaders accused the pro-Palestinian demonstrators of breaking “laws” and behaving in a “disorderly” manner. As the students refused to leave the campus plaza after multiple warnings from the authorities, police were called in.

Within an hour of the police invasion, the encampment was cleared, as well as a large crowd surrounded the encampment. The campuses of several universities in the United States have been in turmoil since the arrest of students at Columbia University earlier last week. Teachers had to switch to online classes to avoid further escalating the tension.

“To deescalate the rancor and give us all a chance to consider the next steps, I am announcing that all classes will be held virtually on Monday,” Minouche Shafik, the University President, said.

The universities are grappling with turmoil as pro-Palestine students are demanding their schools to divest from organizations selling weapons to Israel, while the pro-Israel groups are demanding assurance that they would be safe.
