Pro-Palestinian Protesters Interrupt University of Michigan Commencement Ceremony

A group of pro-Palestinian protesters at the University of Michigan briefly disrupted the spring commencement ceremony, chanting for divestment and holding signs that symbolize Palestinian nationalism. This event is one of many demonstrations in recent weeks as students on college campuses nationwide demand universities to divest from Israeli companies and military suppliers. Other universities affected by similar protests have dealt with tensions between ensuring First Amendment rights, campus security, and conducting regular academic and celebratory events. Though most of the protests have been peaceful, confrontations with law enforcement and counter-protesters have escalated the situation this week.
