Pro-Palestinian protesters chant at alumni event at Penn Museum

Protesters have stopped in front of the Penn Museum gates, where alumni are attending the Franklin Festival as part of Alumni Weekend. “We brought you all here because this is the alumni party,” an organizer shouted. “Do you all know that Penn’s hands are red?” Protesters chanted “UPenn, Upenn you can’t hide, you get rich off genocide” as alumni filmed from the other side of the fence. A protester climbed the fence holding a Palestinian flag.

Protester arrested by police officers

At least six police officers surrounded and arrested a protester in the middle of 34th Street as protesters shouted “You don’t need six f**king pigs on one person” and “PPD, KKK, IOF, they’re all the same.” Police officers have continued to refuse to show their badge numbers despite requests from protesters.

Police asked protesters to move away from the Walnut Street corner as protesters and police were gathered in a tight circle, forcefully pushing each other as police attempted to make arrests. Some protesters attempted to run towards Walnut St., and many officers held tasers. Protesters chanted “PPD, KKK, IOF, they’re all the same” and “Let them free” as people were handcuffed and led into Penn Police vans.
