The "Gaza Solidarity Encampment" demonstrations, organised by student groups such as Columbia University Apartheid Divest (CUAD), Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP), and Jewish Voice for Peace (JVP), have led to tensions and clashes with university administration and local authorities. The protests have raised questions about the balance between free speech, student activism, and campus safety.
