Groups of demonstrators clashed overnight Wednesday at UCLA, one of numerous universities where students have erected tents as part of a wave of protests by students, faculty members and staffers demanding an end to Israel’s actions in Gaza and divestment from firms that sell weapons or services to the country.

The Westwood campus became the first in the University of California system to move against an encampment. Others have been set up at UC campuses at Berkeley, Riverside and Irvine along with colleges and universities across the nation, notably Cal Poly Humboldt.

At USC, access to campus remains restricted to students, faculty, staff and registered guests after more than a week of protests over the Israel-Hamas war.
