Pro-Palestinian protests sweep US college campuses | BBC News

Protests against the war in Gaza have been taking centre stage at college campuses across the US.

Activists have been calling for universities to "divest from genocide" and to stop investing large school endowments in companies involved in weapons manufacturing and other industries supporting Israel’s war in Gaza.

Students at Columbia University in New York set up a protest encampment a week ago. The university asked New York city police to clear the camp on 18 April, and officers arrested about 100 people.

In Texas and California, police confronted campus protesters and made dozens of arrests.
