The Daily Pennsylvanian is following the rising tensions on Penn's campus and beyond — including an encampment that has originated from a march from City Hall, a listening session with the interim president, dueling divestment referendums, and criticism over the suspension of Penn Students Against the Occupation of Palestine.

The group demands that Penn divests from Israel, corporations that benefit from the ongoing Israel-Hamas war, and Israeli institutions committing what it describes as "scholasticide.” It also demands that Penn defend Palestinian students, including granting amnesty to students involved in pro-Palestinian activism and reinstating PAO. The group's suspension has prompted criticism from students, faculty, and community members.

The encampment at Penn follows a spate of other protests and demonstrations at universities around the country — some of which have led to arrests and widespread criticism of university leaders.
