Police clear pro-Palestinian protesters from UBC campus intersection

Police recently cleared a main intersection at the University of British Columbia’s Vancouver campus after pro-Palestinian protesters reportedly blocked the main entrance to the university and caused “difficulties and traffic delays.” The protest occurred during UBC’s spring graduation ceremonies. A statement from the RCMP noted that while demonstrators were told to move off the road, police action was required to clear the intersection. One person was arrested after not complying with police direction. The intersection has since reopened to the public and is being monitored by the RCMP. “Any protest actions must be conducted with respect for others and within the boundaries of UBC policy and the law,” said a statement from UBC.
