Police Attack, Arrest UCLA Protesters as Students Continue to Pressure School over Israel Ties

HeadlineJun 11, 2024

In California, police arrested more than 20 peace activists Monday evening as they staged a protest on the campus of the University of California, Los Angeles. The violent arrests came after students held a funeral procession for the more than 37,000 Palestinians killed by Israel’s assault. This comes just days ahead of UCLA’s commencement, when scores of student protesters facing disciplinary hearings may be prohibited from joining graduation ceremonies, and just weeks after campus police and security officers refused to intervene as pro-Israel counterprotesters, armed with sticks, metal rods and fireworks, attacked students at a Gaza peace encampment.
