Professor Hospitalized After Police Beating at Pro-Palestinian Protest

Professor Steve Tamari, from Southern Illinois University Edwardsville, remains hospitalized with serious injuries following a police altercation at a pro-Palestinian protest at Washington University in St. Louis. The incident occurred during a demonstration urging the university to divest from Boeing due to the ongoing conflict in Gaza. Tamari’s wife, Sandra, shared a video claiming her husband was brutally assaulted by police, resulting in multiple broken ribs and a broken hand. The event has sparked significant backlash, with Megan Green, president of the St. Louis Board of Aldermen, criticizing the university administration for its role in the violence. The protest is part of a larger wave of demonstrations on U.S. college campuses, with similar actions reported globally, reflecting growing international solidarity with Palestine.–News Desk
