NEW: Portland State University shuts down amid Antifa siege of library at Gaza 'liberation' autonomous zone

PSU's library was taken and the doors were barricaded.


Portland State University shut down on Monday after Antifa members in the Gaza Camp protest seized the library on campus.  

The library at PSU was taken over and doors were barricaded on Monday evening.   

On Tuesday morning, an announcement was sent out saying that the campus would be shut down.  

The announcement read that because of the library getting taken over, the school would be shut down.  

Antifa members wrote on the walls about "geocoding" their enemies. The takeover was similar to those seen at Cal Poly Humbolt.  

The shutdown took place after the school made concessions to protesters last week over grants being given to the school from Boeing.  

PSU president Ann Cudd wrote an announcement and sent it to the student protesters last Friday to make inform them about the pause in accepting gifts and grants. The concession from PSU comes amid dozens of Gaza Camp protests happening across the country at different universities.    

The statement read in part, "This week I received a letter signed by a number of members of the PSU community, sharing concerns about PSU’s relationship with the Boeing Company. Indeed, I have heard many students and faculty express that they would like to see PSU cut ties with the company."   

She added, "In consideration of the strong feelings that have been expressed, PSU will pause seeking or accepting any further gifts or grants from the Boeing Company until we have had a chance to engage in this debate and come to conclusions about a reasonable course of action."   
After the encampment went up, some of the protesters were evicted from the campus by authorities last week.   

Included in demands from the protesters were to cut ties with Boeing and any connection to Israel.   

After arrests were made on the campus last week, the protests did not cease, and it continued to grow to the point where they took over the library.   

While some universities have made concessions to the protests, with some protesters occupying buildings on campus, others have been quickly stopped by law enforcement
