Biden calls for peace following major clashes on prominent campuses

After a night of tumultuous pro-Palestinian protests and sizable arrests at prominent campuses on the East and West Coasts, President Biden on Thursday forcefully urged demonstrators to remain peaceful in his first extensive statements on the unrest that has swept universities nationwide.

Biden decried the tactics and violence seen on some campuses, while supporting the rights of students to make their voices heard.

"We've all seen the images," Biden said. "Violent protest is not protected. Peaceful protest is. ... Destroying property is not a peaceful protest. It's against the law."
