Pro-Palestinian protesters at Cal State LA create barrier campus building

Pro-Palestinian protesters at Cal State LA create barrier campus building

A group of 50 to 100 pro-Palestinian protesters at California State University, Los Angeles obstructed entryways and exits of the trainee services structure, apparently trapping a handful of university employees inside the structure Wednesday night.

Aerial video of the presentation recorded by Sky5 showed protesters, some wearing face coverings and kaffiyehs making a barricade of fallen golf carts and picnic tables with umbrellas around the perimeter of the building earlier in the day.

In front of among the structure's entrances, several demonstrators beinged in chairs chained to cement columns.

Another individual was seen spraying a fire extinguisher at the building over what seemed red-colored paint on the ground.

Demonstrators had actually established an encampment on another part of the university's school where they have actually been for some 40 days, according to reporting from the Los Angeles Times.


University spokesperson Erik Frost Hollins informed The Times that they got an email from the group CSU LA Gaza Solidarity Encampment informing them that they prepared a sit-in at the student services building regardless of the reality the school had headed out of its way to supply an area for non-violent, tranquil demonstrations.

" Unfortunately, this action entered a various method today," the university informed The Times.

By 10 p.m., officers with the Los Angeles Police Department together with school authorities showed up on school from Sky5, though it's uncertain the length of time cops preserved an existence.

This presentation begins the heels of current pro-Palestinian encampments at UCLA and USC.
