Pro-Palestinian, Pro-Israel students clash in heated SA Senate meeting

Pro-Palestinian and pro-Israel students clashed with each other and with Student Association (SA) President Becky Paul-Odionhin for more than an hour at a tense and sometimes fiery SA Senate meeting Wednesday evening. Attendees argued over experiences of hate and discrimination at UB, and over Paul-Odionhin’s continued blockage of a vote on a Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP)-backed resolution.

7 students arrested during May 1 protest will not face on-campus disciplinary action

UB will not charge the seven students arrested during last week’s pro-Palestine demonstration with Student Code of Conduct violations, a university spokesperson told The Spectrum Thursday evening.  The seven students — plus eight protesters not affiliated with the university — were arrested on May 1 after they refused to disperse at sundown. UB administrators maintain that by doing so, the protesters violated the university’s Picketing and Assembling Policy, which prohibits “overnight assemblies.”
