Police Use Riot Gear to Disperse UCLA Protests, Arrest Several Individuals

In a dramatic turn of events, law enforcement officers in riot gear swiftly intervened at the University of California, Los Angeles campus. Their mission: to dismantle a pro-Palestinian encampment and apprehend several individuals involved.

In the early hours of Thursday morning, California Highway Patrol officers took action at UCLA by breaking through barricades to dismantle a wooden wall that had been erected by activists protesting the Israel-Hamas war in the Gaza Strip. Additionally, they removed tents in the vicinity, where remnants of broken wood and damaged furniture were scattered.


Despite repeated orders from the police to disperse, a group of activists at UCLA refused to leave the premises. In an act of defiance, they even sprayed officers with fire extinguishers.

By Thursday, the police had reached their breaking point in the ongoing standoff that had begun on Tuesday. They made the bold decision to take decisive action and resolve the situation forcefully.

In this video, you can see how hundreds of CHP officers, along with the LAPD and Sheriff’s Office, dismantle parts of the encampment. As they carry out their operation, the sound of exploding fireworks or flashbangs can be heard in the background.

The officers, dressed in tactical gear, were observed apprehending multiple students and using plastic zip ties to secure them while they remained seated on the ground. It remains uncertain whether the protesters were officially arrested.

The situation at UCLA, as well as at universities across the nation, is undeniably filled with dramatic events.
