Student Power: Freedoms Under Threat in the U.S.

As well as calling for a ceasefire, students across America are demanding their universities cut all ties with Israel over its actions in Gaza. But their peaceful protests have been met with a brutal crackdown leading to hundreds of arrests.

U.S. presidential candidate Jill Stein tells Ghida Fakhry the pro-Israel lobby’s grip on American politicians is a challenge to democracy. While economist and Columbia professor Jeffrey Sachs denounces the “authoritarian” approach that violates the norms of university life and goes against the will of the American people.
