Crowd at Columbia University Chants 'Palestine Is Arab'

Chants of “Palestine is Arab” could be heard at the gates of Columbia University in New York on April 17, as protesters gathered in support of Gaza.

The protest followed the building of an encampment on the university’s South Lawn. It was held as the university’s president, Nemat Shafik, testified before a House committee on issues of antisemitism, student safety, and free speech.

“Hundreds are now outside the gates of Columbia University,” the Party for Socialism and Liberation wrote on X. Credit: Party for Socialism and Liberation via Storyful
