At least 40 people have been arrested in New Haven, Connecticut, after the third night of pro-Palestinian protesters’ encampment at Yale University, according to Yale Daily News.

The protesters were holding an encampment at Beinecke Plaza on Yale’s campus, demanding the university divest from military weapons manufacturers. On Monday morning, police with riot gear were called to the university, and as of 8 a.m., police arrested at least 40 people, charging them with trespassing, and dismantled multiple tents. Yale Police Chief Anthony Campbell said protesters were given a warning Sunday at 11 p.m. and again Monday at 7 a.m. to leave the area or face arrest.

Some protesters were heard saying, ​​”YPD or KKK, IDF, they’re all the same,” and, “Arab blood is not cheap, for the martyrs we will speak.”

On Sunday, some protesters were seen creating a block, preventing some students from entering campus buildings. Now, around 350 protesters are blocking the intersection to College and Grove Streets. Police have said they do not plan to make any more arrests as long as the situation remains nonviolent.

“As long as there is no violence or threats or anything like that, the plan is to not make arrests,” New Haven Police Officer Christian Bruckhart told the Yale Daily News.


The arrests come as Columbia University moved classes to a virtual format on Monday over concerns of antisemitic behavior during pro-Palestinian protests. More than 100 people have been arrested in connection with Columbia’s protests.

“We need a reset,” Columbia President Minouche Shafik said in a statement on Monday. “To deescalate the rancor and give us all a chance to consider next steps, I am announcing that all classes will be held virtually on Monday.”
