Homeless Individuals Join Pro-Palestinian Encampment At University Of Washington

The “liberation zone” a pro-Palestinian encampment at the University of Washington (UW) has attracted the participation of homeless people, according to a member of the school’s Turning Point USA (TPUSA) chapter. 

The encampment which covers a significant portion of the campus quad has been the site of recent violent clashes between protesters and conservative students.

Katelyn Seratt a TPUSA chapter member at UW told the organization that during a walk through the quad before a tabling event featuring TPUSA founder and CEO Charlie Kirk she observed “a couple of homeless people in that mini-community.”

The presence of homeless individuals in the encampment adds another layer of complexity to the ongoing tensions between pro-Palestinian activists and conservative student groups on campus. 

It also raises questions about the university’s handling of the situation and its responsibility to maintain a safe and secure environment for all students.

The “liberation zone” has been at the center of controversy in recent weeks with protesters demanding that the university divest from Israel cut ties with Boeing and end alleged repression of pro-Palestine students faculty and staff. 

The encampment has also been the site of violent altercations between protesters and TPUSA supporters.
