US troopers crack down on pro-Palestinian protests at University of Texas

Anti-riot troopers are called in to crack down on pro-Palestinian protesters on the campus of the University of Texas as similar rallies heat up throughout seats of learning across the United States.

Eyewitness footage recorded from the incidents on Wednesday, showed the forces charging the students, forcing them to the ground, and detaining them as other protesters chanted, “Let them go.”

At least 10 people were detained, The Texas Tribune reported.

Pro-Palestinian academic activism has grown significantly across the US since the onset of the Israeli regime’s US-backed war of genocide against the Gaza Strip.

Pro-Palestinian protests gain momentum across US universities

Pro-Palestinian protests gain momentum throughout universities across the US amid the Israeli regime’s ongoing genocidal war against the Gaza Strip.

The United States has been providing the regime with maximal military and intelligence support since October 7, when the latter unleashed the war. Washington has also vetoed several United Nations Security Council resolutions calling for a ceasefire in the brutal military onslaught that has so far killed more than 34,100 Palestinians, most of them women and children.

American students have been raging against their universities’ connection to the Israeli regime and Washington’s all-out support for the genocide.

According to Reuters, tent protests are underway on campuses from coast to coast, “including Brown University in Providence, Rhode Island, the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor, Massachusetts Institute of Technology in Cambridge, and California State Polytechnic in Humboldt.”

Throughout the US, academics have also been banding together under the banner Faculty and Staff for Justice in Palestine (FSJP) in support of the war-hit Palestinians.

Most recently, the FSJP’s Georgia chapter called on Morehouse College in Atlanta that has invited Joe Biden as its 2024 commencement speaker to rescind its invitation as means of objecting to the president’s role in enabling the Israeli genocide.
