Police arrest pro-Palestinian supporters at encampment on Yale University plaza

Source: NBC News

Police officers on Monday arrested protesters who had set up an encampment on Yale University’s campus in support of the Palestinian cause, one of a growing number of American universities to see demonstrations surrounding the ongoing Israel-Hamas war.

Protesters had been on their third night of camping out in an effort to urge Yale to divest from military weapons manufacturers, the Yale Daily News reported.

Officers gathered at the protest site at Beinecke Plaza shortly before 7 a.m. Monday and were seen approaching the encampment and “flipping up the entrances to the tents,” the school paper wrote on X.

Then officers issued a warning for students and journalists to leave, or they’d be arrested.

Were not those in the video. By all accounts they were peaceful. "During a news conference later that day, NYPD commissioner Edward Caban said: “The students that were arrested were peaceful, offered no resistance whatsoever, and were saying what they wanted to say.”"
