NYPD officers in riot gear march onto Columbia University campus, where pro-Palestinian students are barricaded inside a building and have set up an encampment, in New York City April 30, 2024. — AFP picNEW YORK, May 17 — After the arrests of pro-Palestine student protesters occupying a Columbia University building last month, New York Mayor Eric Adams and senior police officials repeatedly said there were “no injuries,” no “violent clashes” and minimal force used.

At least three injured protesters arrested inside Hamilton were taken by police to hospitals that night while still in custody, time-stamped hospital records show. Mamelak wrote in an email that the arrests, which involved hundreds of armed officers in riot gear, were “a complicated operation” handled “with professionalism and respect.”

Columbia spokesperson Ben Chang said he would answer Reuters queries by May 10, but did not send replies by that date and did not respond to subsequent emails and phone calls. Aidan Parisi, a 27-year-old student in Columbia’s social work department, recalled police “stepping on top of people, throwing people,” and said that several protesters yelled, “We are unarmed!”
