✍️ George Washington University president Ellen M. Granberg released a statement yesterday calling the pro-Palestinian protest encampment an "illegal and potentially dangerous occupation of GW property" and cited "antisemitic images and hateful rhetoric." The statement puts additional pressure on D.C. police to clear the encampment, now in its second week, which the department has declined to do when previously asked. (GW Hatchet)
