Pro-Palestinian Columbia Graduates Tear Diplomas, Show Support for Hamas at Ceremony


Despite Columbia University’s main graduation event being canceled due to mass unrest amongst students, pro-Palestinian graduates still managed to protest at their smaller departments’ ceremonies.

Graduates of the New York City institution donned zip-tie handcuffs and protest signs as they walked across the stage at the school’s Friday social work graduation, with one even tearing her diploma to shreds in front of the audience. 

Footage that the New York Post obtained shows several graduates storming down the platform in keffiyehs — Middle Eastern scarves used to symbolize Palestinian nationalism — to accept their degrees.
