Administrators at a university in Los Angeles asked for law enforcement assistance following violent clashes at a pro-Palestinian protest camp. The police responded to the request. A university official stated that there were horrific acts of violence at the camp, and they called for immediate support. Videos shared on social media show clashes between protesters, firecrackers exploding near them, and people using irritant sprays. The encampment was declared illegal by university officials, who warned protesters of consequences if they didn’t leave. This was a significant change for a campus known for tolerance during protests.
