The University of Michigan on Wednesday warned about a “dangerous escalation” of pro-Hamas protestors after dozens of masked activists targeted the homes of its Board of Regents members.

More than 30 masked protestors staged demonstrations at the private residences of multiple Board of Regents members and others, where they erected tents, and littered lawns with fake corpses in bloodied sheets, bloodied toys, and other garbage.

“The tactics used today represent a significant and dangerous escalation in the protests that have been occurring on campus,” the university said in a statement. “Going to an individual’s private residence is intimidating behavior and, in this instance, illegal trespassing. This kind of conduct is not protected speech; it’s dangerous and unacceptable.”

UM pointed to a post on X from the TAHRIR Coalition that claimed responsibility for the crimes. The coalition, which organized the ongoing encampment on the university’s Central Campus Diag, involves more than 90 student organizations “united for the TAHRIR (liberation) of Palestine,” according to the group’s X bio.

The UM press release specifically names the Jewish Voice for Peace at the University of Michigan, Students Allied for Freedom and Equality and Transparency, and the TAHRIR Coalition.

“Around 4:40 A.M., a masked intruder came to the door of my family’s home with a list of demands, including defunding the police. My three daughters were asleep in their beds, and thankfully unaware of what transpired,” U of M Regent Jordan Acker posted to X on Wednesday.

“This form of protest is not peaceful,” he wrote. “Public officials should not be subject to this sort of intimidating conduct, and this behavior is unacceptable from any Michigan community member, especially one led by someone who called for the death of people they disagree with.”

“I will not be intimidated,” Acker wrote.

Regent Sarah Hubbard, whose home was featured in the X post cited by the university, shared a similar experience in a Wednesday post to X.

“This morning at 5:54 a.m. a group of approximately 30 individuals representing protestors from the University of Michigan’s campus entered my property, erected three tents and left behind a variety of toys, sheets and other items,” she wrote.

“They proceeded to use bullhorns, drums and chants to disrupt my home and neighborhood. They also taped a list of ‘demands’ to my front door. When Meridian Township police responded, the protestors departed and abandoned their property on my lawn. No arrests were made,” the thread continued.

“The group has asked for a response to their ‘demands.’ In March, the Board of Regents spoke clearly regarding their request for divesting from our endowment,” Hubbard wrote. “Again, the answer is NO.”

Hubbard invited the protestors to air their grievances at the Board of Regents meeting on Thursday.

“Protesting at a public official’s private residence is unacceptable and will not move their cause forward in a satisfactory manner,” she wrote.

The nonsense on Wednesday followed weeks of pro-Hamas protests at the U of M campus as part of a broader nationwide movement at colleges and universities across the country. Those protests have included clashes with police, vandalism, and literature calling for “Death to America” in an effort to pressure university officials into divesting from companies with ties to Israel.

Earlier this month, about 50 protestors with Palestinian flags chanted anti-Semitic slogans when they stormed the stage during the U of M commencement ceremony as U.S. Secretary of the Navy Carlos Del Toro addressed the crowd, Fox News reports.

Alex Sepulveda, a U of M junior who serves as the media contact for the protest encampment on campus, confirmed to WDIV the same protestors were responsible for targeting the university’s regents this week, noting the action was sparked in part by Hubbard’s refusal to cede to their demands.

“She saw us protesting, she was inside, she knew exactly what we were asking for, and she looked us right in the eyes and laughed at us,” he said, adding that students intend to maintain the encampment until the university agrees to divest.

Democrats in the Michigan Legislature, meanwhile, are providing cover for the protests.

Last Thursday, Senate Democrats shot down multiple budget amendments proposed by Republicans aimed at addressing rampant anti-Semitism and support for terrorists on the state’s university campuses.

One amendments would have withheld funding increases for universities with sanctioned student organizations that have “a demonstrated history of supporting terrorist organizations or threats of violence to others.”

Another aimed to block students from state-funded scholarships if they violate the student code of conduct with “support of a terrorist organization.”

“Students are choosing to set their education aside and instead stand in line with extremism, violence, and antisemitism. Worse yet, American students are participating in anti-American chants and support a US. Government-designated terrorist organization, Hamas,”  Sen. Joe Bellino, R-Monroe, said. “This is both dangerous and concerning.”

Democrats including Trenton Sen. Darrin Camilleri, Detroit Sen. Stephanie Chang, and Northfield Township Sen. Sue Shink defended the pro-Hamas protestors.

“These demonstrations are overwhelmingly focused on safeguarding human rights and dignity for all, no matter their race, religion, or nationality. Those are American values,” they said in a statement cited by Michigan Advance. “I urge my colleagues to focus more of their attention on the tens of thousands of lives that have been lost rather than how students are exercising their First Amendment rights.”
