Where College Protests Against Israel’s War in Gaza Are Happening

In recent days, police and university administrators have clashed with pro-Palestinian protesters on a growing number of college campuses across the country, arresting students, clearing encampments and threatening academic consequences.

The new wave of student activism against the Gaza war was sparked by the arrest of at least 108 protesters at Columbia University on April 18, after administrators appeared before Congress and promised a crackdown . Since then, police interventions on several campuses, notably in some of the largest American cities, have led to more than 700 arrests.

This is where arrests were reported as authorities attempted to disperse protests or encampments:
