Denver police arrest pro-Palestinian protesters at Auraria Campus

Police, decked out in riot gear, confronted pro-Palestinian protesters who gathered at Denver's Auraria Campus for a second day on Friday, arresting anyone who had not cleared the area by 12:45 p.m.

Chants of “Long live Palestine” and “free Palestine” continued to fill the Tivoli Quad just before 2:30 p.m. even as police handcuffed the protesters, removed them from the scene and loaded them onto Denver Sheriff's Department buses.

“If you push me one more time, you're going to jail,” a Denver police officer is heard saying the assembled students tell in a video while other officers carried a protester off the quad by her arms and legs.

The Auraria Campus – home to the University of Colorado Denver, Metropolitan State University of Denver and Community College of Denver – sent a warning first to avoid the Tivoli Quad “due to civil unrest” Friday at 12:30 p.m. As of 2:30 p.m., all incoming traffic to campus remained closed.

“If you don't disperse, every one of you will be arrested and prosecuted,” police officers can be heard telling protesters in one video posted by the Colorado Palestine Coalition on Instagram Friday afternoon. “If you remain, reasonable and necessary force will be used to remove you”
