Pro-Palestinian protesters deface UNC’s South Building, set up new encampment


Just hours before the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill (UNC) commencement ceremony scheduled for tonight at 7 p.m., a pro-Palestinian rally on campus took place as some demonstrators vandalized the South Building with paint and chalk.

Demonstrators defaced the South Building with red paint, including images of bloody hands and messages saying “UNC has blood on its hands.”

The steps of the building were also covered in red paint.

UNC has since power washed that off.

Also on the campus, a new protest encampment has been established, with tents set up and protestors holding signs that read “Stop Genocide” and “End the Siege.”

On Franklin Street earlier today, protesters organized a “people’s graduation” to honor students suspended following a campus protest two weeks ago. The protest involved the intervention of police called in by UNC’s interim chancellor.

The University of North Carolina tightened security protocols for commencement this year, mandating clear bags, valid student IDs, and banning both flags and signs.
