University Protest Updates: Police continue to clear encampments as protests spread globally

New York police began clearing encampments at New York University and the New School on Friday morning and took more than 50 protesters into custody. Pro-Palestinian protests and resulting police actions continued to roil the campus and many others across the country; more than 130 people were arrested at the State University of New York at New Paltz, and 17 were taken into custody late Thursday night at the University of Notre Dame. In Oregon, law enforcement officers evacuated a library at Portland State University for the second time Thursday evening, bringing the number of arrests that day to at least 30.
