AUSTIN (KXAN)—There’s an active investigation at the University of Texas at Austin, looking into protesters who, “crossed the line,” according to a statement the UT put on X Wednesday morning.

According to a pro-Palestinian organization, there were at least two pro-Palestinian protests on campus last week, speaking out after they said two UT Teaching Assistants lost their positions after putting out mental health resources for Palestinian, Arab and Muslim students about Palestine. This came as tensions continued to rise overseas in the Hamas-Israel war.

A UT student part of a pro-Palestinian organization on campus told KXAN that multiple organizations were involved in protests on campus last week.

KXAN is working to obtain videos and statements from those involved. Reporter Jala Washington also requested an interview with the UT.
