About our Campus Protests news

Latest news on the 2024 pro-Palestinian protests on university campuses, providing comprehensive coverage of the nationwide student movement, encampments, arrests, university responses, and the impact on the Israel-Gaza conflict.

The 2024 pro-Palestinian protests on university campuses began in the United States on 17 April and have since spread to other countries, including Canada, the UK, Australia, and France. The protests, led by student groups such as Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP) and Jewish Voice for Peace (JVP), demand that universities divest from Israel and call for an end to US support for the Israel-Gaza war. As of 30 April, over 1,400 protesters have been arrested on more than 25 US campuses.

The protests have faced crackdowns from university administrations and police, with mass arrests occurring at Columbia University, Emerson College, the University of Southern California, and the University of Texas. Tasers and tear gas have been used against protesters, sparking criticism from civil rights groups and some politicians. Universities have suspended and expelled students involved in the protests. Despite this, the movement continues to grow, with encampments established on over 40 campuses nationwide.

The protests have brought attention to the human impact of the Israel-Gaza conflict, with students sharing personal stories and holding teach-ins and interfaith events. Demonstrators have also highlighted the treatment of Palestinian students on campus and the need for universities to provide a safe and inclusive environment for all. Counter-protests and accusations of antisemitism have added to the complexity and tensions surrounding the movement.

The 2024 protests have been compared to the 1968 anti-Vietnam War campus protests due to their scale and tactics. Protesters have studied the historical movement and see themselves as building upon its legacy. The current protests also reflect the growing support for Palestinian rights among younger generations and the ongoing debate over the role of universities in social and political issues.

As the 2024 pro-Palestinian protests on university campuses continue to unfold, our NewsNow feed provides comprehensive, up-to-date coverage from reliable sources. Stay informed about the latest developments, university responses, and the broader impact of this significant student movement on the Israel-Gaza conflict and the national conversation surrounding it.
