Carrying Palestinian flags and holding banners, an estimated 200 people participated in Saturday's demonstration.

Protests over Israel's war in Gaza have broken out at more than 60 colleges and universities this year, disrupted President Joe Biden's events around the country, pushed Democrats in key battleground states to vote "uncommitted" and divided the Democratic party.

Groups organizing the protests say that a recent halt to some weapons to Israel was too little too late, and are planning fresh demonstrations, though the summer break may quieten action on campuses.
