    Protesters Rename Columbia University’s Hamilton Hall to ‘Hind’s Hall’ in Ongoing Siege

    -

    Columbia University is in the midst of turmoil as protesters, dissatisfied with the university’s stance on divesting ties with Israel, have taken drastic action. The epicenter of this unrest is Hamilton Hall, a historical site deeply intertwined with student activism.

    President Nemat Minouche Shafik’s refusal to yield to protesters’ demands has escalated tensions. Following failed negotiations, protesters have barricaded themselves inside Hamilton Hall, symbolically renaming it ‘Hind’s Hall’ in honor of Hind Rajab and all individuals they perceive as martyrs.

    The significance of Hamilton Hall dates back to the 1968 protests at Columbia University. During this period, it emerged as a pivotal location for student activism against the university’s involvement in the Vietnam War and its expansion into neighboring Harlem communities. The occupation of Hamilton Hall and subsequent negotiations epitomized the struggle for academic freedom and racial equality.
