On this edition of Your Call’s Media Roundtable, we discuss the crackdown on peaceful Gaza solidarity protests popping up across US college campuses. Students are demanding that their universities divest from companies that profit from Israeli occupation.

We also talk about an investigation into the increasingly repressive measures being deployed to target protesters and social movements in the US.
