Pro-Hamas protests are raging at UCLA as of this writing, with a large group of roving demonstrators engaged in what the Los Angeles Times ludicrously labels “largely peaceful” activities, like trying to break into buildings, assaulting journalists, bloodying a security guard, and vandalizing school property. They put red dye in a fountain, splashed more dye on the steps, carted around fake corpses and dismembered body parts while reading the names of people who have supposedly died in Gaza. 


They neglected to read out any of the names of the victims of the Oct. 7 Hamas terrorist attack:

Protesters formed a roving pro-Palestinian camp on UCLA’s campus Monday afternoon to recite the names of thousands of people who have died in Gaza.

Police ordered the demonstrators to disperse at least twice, and the crowd quickly dismantled tents and barricades and moved to different locations on campus.

As protesters marched, one among them was reading aloud names of Palestinians killed.

“They will not die in vain,” protesters chanted after each name. “They will be redeemed.”

Some protesters set roses down next to a coffin painted with the Palestinian flag that sat alongside fake bloodied corpses. A helicopter hovered overhead.

According to a witness, this security guard was the recipient of the "largely peaceful" action:

Also, largely peaceful seems to include blocking certain people from walking on campus: 


It’s all very peaceful if you’re on their team and are not with the police, but otherwise, not so much:

They also reportedly poured hot soup on the neck of the above journalist. 

Where I come from, vandalism is a crime, but to many progressives, these folks are just exercising their constitutional rights:

As we’ve reported, UCLA has been the site of plenty of such pro-Hamas activity before:

The police presence thus far has been far stronger than it was during the initial protests, and they’ve been taking the paper-mache props from some of the radicals and detaining others. Initially, this one had the look of going on late into the night, but tensions have calmed for the moment as police have issued a dispersal order. RedState will keep you updated as events warrant.
