They claimed that the former US States secretary was unaffected by the violence against Palestinians.

The protest comes at time when Biden administration is under fire over its response to Israel’s war on Gaza that has killed over 33,000 Palestinians and failure to declare a ceasefire.

According to local news media reports, irate students reportedly distributed flyers around the campus claiming that Clinton is the “most beloved war criminal” at Wellesley and that the former first lady has “blood on her hands.”

The college administration recognised the protest, but did not denounce it.

In a statement, Vice president and dean of students Sheilah Shaw Horton said, “I encourage all who participate in activism to follow the demonstration policy and be mindful of our Code of Student Conduct so that you remain safe for yourself, and for our community.”

This wasn’t the first time that Clinton was met with demonstration during her visit to American universities.

“Get over yourself,” Clinton said, adding that “Those are the two choices.”
