Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib says students should be able to set up encampments on college campuses.

On Thursday, she made these comments during a press conference after police broke up encampments at the University of Michigan.

Tlaib (D-Mich.) compared pro-Hamas demonstrations to the civil rights movement, claiming she is on the right side of history.

“This week at the University of Michigan, police violently destroyed the peaceful most beautiful encampment interfaith students’ encampment,” she stated.

“I know from the civil rights movement to the Vietnam war to the end of apartheid in South Africa to the movement for Black lives,” she continued. “Our country has a long history of students leading nonviolent civil disobedience and demanding change in our country. Students have been on the right side of history time and time again.”

Republicans say that there is no moral equivalence between Hamas terrorism and civil rights.

The University of Michigan’s president said while students do have a right to peacefully protest, they cannot occupy public space and prevent others from accessing it.
