The barricades erected around a pro-Palestinian encampment at Queen’s University in Kingston, Ont., have been deemed a safety risk, according to university officials.

Protesters said they erected the barricades on Wednesday night following what they noted were incidents that posed safety concerns from members of the public. They added that the barricades also act as a show to the university, emphasizing their plans to remain until their demands are met.
