This is what happened at US campus protests this weekend

Graduation ceremonies began at colleges and universities across the US this weekend, as administrators grappled with massive pro-Palestinian protests on campus.

Demands varied, but most protesters called for their schools to divest from companies and other entities they say support or benefit from Israel’s war on Gaza.

Here are the key developments across the country on Saturday and Sunday:

University of Southern California: Police cleared a pro-Palestinian encampment at USC without making any arrests Sunday, the school said. It is the second time the school has dismantled a camp at the Los Angeles university. School president Carol Folt said in a statement that the protesters had chosen to “break the law” and that camping would not be tolerated on campus.
Princeton University: Some students at Princeton University in New Jersey have gone on hunger strike until their demands are met, according to a student protest group. At least 17 undergraduate students participated on Sunday, according to the Daily Princetonian. Princeton told CNN that they are “concerned about their well-being,” and that medical experts are monitoring the group.
DePaul University: Chicago police were called to campus to help manage a large demonstration Sunday, the school said. CNN video showed a large group of police, protesters and counter-demonstrators, but no apparent signs of violence or vandalism in the early afternoon at the school.
University of California, Los Angeles: UCLA Chancellor Gene D. Block said “immediate change” is needed with school security operations after violence during recent campus protests. The university also said it will resume normal operations on Monday, and plans to hold some in-person instruction throughout the week.
Art Institute of Chicago: Police said they arrested 68 people, including students from affiliated schools, during a demonstration at the museum Saturday. A spokesman for the institute said protesters had “pushed security officers and stolen their museum keys, blocked emergency exits, and blocked gates,” and rejected offers to move to a new location.
University of Virginia: Police cleared pro-Palestinian protesters and demolished tents near the center of the Charlottesville campus on Saturday. A line of officers in riot gear approached the group of protesters, grabbing umbrellas, before pushing forward into a line of tents and canopies, video from CNN affiliate WVIR shows. UVA said 25 people were arrested for trespassing.
University of Michigan: Pro-Palestinian protesters were removed from the university’s grand opening ceremony after briefly disrupting it. Protests also disrupted a smaller ceremony on campus on Friday.
University of Vermont: The school announced Friday that Linda Thomas-Greenfield, the US ambassador to the United Nations, will no longer deliver the commencement address. Several protesters on campus have asked the university to rescind its invitation to the ambassador.
