Pro-Hamas activism is spreading rapidly, causing chaos at several universities including the University of Michigan, Brown, MIT, Cal Poly, and USC, among others. Police are on high alert, equipped in riot gear.

At the University of Texas in Austin, 57 people were arrested, while 93 were taken into custody at USC on Wednesday night, prompting the closure of the campus “until further notice.”

Agitators are demanding that their colleges cease business dealings and reject research grants from Israel.

House Speaker Mike Johnson and other lawmakers addressed the situation at Columbia University yesterday after meeting with Jewish students. They called for the immediate resignation of the university’s president.
