Small pro-Palestinian protests held Saturday as college commencements are held

Small pro-Palestinian protests are popping up sporadically as colleges and universities hold commencement services. Among the demonstrations on Saturday were dozens of graduating students at Virginia Commonwealth University who walked out on Gov. Glenn Youngkin's address. While some of the estimated 100 students and family members who left during the Republican governor's speech showed support for Palestinians, others held signs signaling their opposition to Youngkin's education policies, according to WRIC-TV. At the University of Wisconsin-Madison, a small group of demonstrators staged what appeared to be a silent protest during commencement ceremonies. A campus police spokesperson says no arrests were made. There were also protests in North Carolina and California.
