·1 min

Pro-Palestinian protesters occupying a building at a university in Melbourne have been instructed to leave by university officials. The officials claim that the protesters have disrupted classes and crossed a line by entering the building. Thousands of students have been affected by the protest, with more than 150 classes being cancelled. The protesters have demanded that the university divest from weapons companies and condemn Israel’s actions in Gaza. Similar protests have occurred at other universities in Australia, with some receiving orders to dismantle their camps. The university officials have called for a peaceful end to the occupation.
