Chalk pleas and arguments with opponents: Inside another college campus pro-Palestine protest in Manhattan

Students at the School of Visual Arts (SVA) in Kips Bay joined with others colleges across the nation Thursday in pro-Palestine protests demanding that their institution divests from Israel.

A small band of young people are performing what they are calling a sit-in at the SVA administrative offices inside of 340 East 24th St. The group is apparently refusing to move from inside the building until a list of demands are met, which includes publicly condemning the onslaught on Gaza and disclosing if financial assets are supporting the ongoing war in Gaza, launched after terrorists attacked Israel on Oct. 7, 2023.
