Rep. Jamaal Bowman Advocates Peaceful Protest Amid Columbia Encampment Demonstrations

Bowman: ‘Need More Protests’ Like Columbia Encampment, UCLA Looked Disorderly, But Cops Caused Disorder

Rep. Jamaal Bowman of New York spoke on MSNBC’s “Alex Wagner Tonight” about the Columbia encampment protests, emphasizing their peaceful nature. He highlighted the provision of essential services like mental health support, libraries, food, and water at the encampment.

Bowman stressed that the protests aimed to oppose the collective punishment of Palestinian civilians in Gaza, expressing concern over the portrayal of disorderly protests at other locations like UCLA.

Addressing the deployment of law enforcement officers in military gear to colleges, Bowman argued that such actions bring disorder and chaos rather than maintaining peace.

Bowman reiterated the importance of understanding the core issue behind the protests: opposition to U.S. support for actions harming civilians in Gaza. He emphasized the necessity for peaceful protests to hold Congress accountable for addressing pressing issues. Bowman called for more peaceful demonstrations to push lawmakers towards focusing on pertinent matters.
