90 people arrested at Dartmouth protest, police say

Ninety people were arrested at a pro-Palestinian protest Wednesday at Dartmouth College on suspicion of offenses including criminal trespass and resisting arrest, police in the New Hampshire town of Hanover said.

The arrests came after tents were set up during the protest on Dartmouth Green – a move that the campus security department said would not be allowed, Hanover police said.

“A tent was set up, Dartmouth Safety & Security made several announcements to attendees that they must disperse, and they refused,” Hanover police said in a news release.
Hanover Police and New Hampshire State Police also told people to leave, and “while some chose to leave, many stayed,” leading to arrests, the release said.

Those arrested included Dartmouth students and those who did not attend the college, police said.

Video from CNN affiliate WMUR showed police pulling protesters one by one from the crowd gathered on Dartmouth Green and holding them in zip ties Wednesday night.

Protesters can be heard chanting “Free Palestine” while holding banners and flags.

State police were deployed to Dartmouth because of “illegal activity and at the request of local law enforcement,” the New Hampshire Department of Safety told CNN.
