HeadlineMay 08, 2024

The police crackdown on peaceful student protesters continues across the country. In Illinois, police cleared an encampment at the University of Chicago. Here in New York, police forces raided a protest camp at the Fashion Institute of Technology and arrested dozens of protesters Tuesday.

Meanwhile, in Europe, police arrested more than 100 activists at the University of Amsterdam. Police also dismantled an encampment at Berlin’s Free University.

Despite the police repression, new encampments continue to form. In Cambridge, Massachusetts, students at MIT restarted a Gaza solidarity encampment.
