UNC is asking pro-Palestine protesters to stop wearing masks, citing a 1953 anti-KKK law

Pro-Palestinian protesters – many wearing masks – demonstrate outside South Building on UNC’s campus.

Since the October 7 Hamas attack on Israel and the outbreak of the war in Gaza, campus protests have become common. The organization Students for Justice in Palestine has been part of more than a half dozen at UNC. Some have been rallies, one was a sit-in at South Building, and a third was a so-called “die-in.”

At each of the protests, many participants wore masks – and that’s become a point of contention for university officials.

Sierra Pfeifer explains why.
