Campus Protests Over Gaza Conflict Spread Across US, Resulting in Arrests and Confrontations

Protests have erupted on university campuses across the United States in response to the ongoing conflict in Gaza, with demonstrations turning violent in some cases. At Columbia University, police arrested over 100 protesters and cleared a tent encampment, while similar protests at other schools, including the University of California, Los Angeles, and the University of Wisconsin, resulted in clashes with law enforcement and arrests. The protests have sparked debates over free speech, academic freedom, and the role of universities in addressing global conflicts.
