Protesters dismantle encampment at ULaval after police intervention

On Saturday, the Québec City police intervened in the formation of an encampment by protestors at the Université Laval. According to the Canadian Press, protesters were told by the police that they could either dismantle the encampment themselves or watch the police do it by force. Protesters decided to take down their camps and continue their demonstration in other ways. CBC reports that one person was arrested and three were ticketed during the intervention. Like other pro-Palestinian demonstrations across the country, the protesters at ULaval were calling on the university for financial transparency and to disclose any investments with links to Israel.
