UT-Austin Protests

Campuses across Texas had pro-Palestinian demonstrations. Why did only UT-Austin crack down?

Dozens of people were arrested in Austin, while sit ins and demonstrations elsewhere happened mostly unobstructed. School officials say it’s because campus rules were broken.

Pro-Palestinian protesters calling for a ceasefire in Gaza march through the outdoor corridors of UTSA on Wednesday, April 24, 2024.
