UPenn Students Arrested at Palestine Demo After Building Occupation Attempt

Nearly twenty UPenn students and supporters were arrested after briefly occupying Fisher-Bennett Hall along 34th Street. Officers including UPenn's Emergency Response Teams worked to shove hundreds of pro-Palestine demonstrators away from what they renamed Refaat Alareer Hall. The action was an extension of the encampment organizing swept by police action a week earlier.
