Columbia University students staged a walkout Wednesday on a lecture by Hillary Clinton amid the ongoing upheaval at colleges across the U.S. in response to Israel's war on Hamas.

Clinton, a former secretary of state, is a professor of practice at the university's School of International and Public Affairs and a presidential fellow at Columbia World Projects.

The protest was led by students over a billboard in support of pro-Palestinian students whose names and pictures they allege were obtained through the school system, then put on a billboard.

The billboard labeled them “Columbia’s Leading Antisemites" and was affixed to a truck circling the Ivy League school's Manhattan campus, according to The New York Times. 

The name of the protest group is "Stop Antisemitism Now," and the lecture walkouts were held campus-wide.

The students are reportedly also demanding legal support and a "commitment to public safety."
