In the United States, Columbia University postpones the evacuation of the campus, occupied by pro-Palestinian students

Columbia University has postponed Friday's midnight (6 a.m. CST) deadline for pro-Palestinian students to evacuate the occupied campus to protest the war in Gaza, it announced. .

“Negotiations have progressed and are continuing as planned,” said the office of the president of the New York university, Minouche Shafik, in a press release published Thursday evening. “We have our requests, they have theirs,” continues the presidential office, denying that police intervention was requested.

“They call us terrorists, they call us violent. But the only tool we have is our voices,” said one of the students at the pro-Palestinian rally, introducing herself as Mimi.

The pro-Palestinian American student movement, which has become widespread on American campuses, left Columbia University in New York more than a week ago. Some of the most prestigious universities in the world are affected, such as Harvard, Yale and Princeton.
