Pro-Palestine Protests Disrupt University of Michigan Graduation Ceremony

During the University of Michigan's commencement ceremony, a group of protesters briefly interrupted the event, carrying Palestinian flags and signs. The protest follows weeks of nationwide campus demonstrations by students demanding their universities divest from Israeli companies and firms supplying weapons to Israel. The demonstrations, largely peaceful, have been met with counter-protests and have challenged college administrators to balance First Amendment rights with campus security.
