Duke Sit-In Protesters Won’t Leave President’s Office

Don’t they have classes to attend?

Duke University administrators have flatly rejected calls to continue negotiations with student protesters but the student government passed a resolution in support of the week-long sit-in, calling it a way for students to “peacefully express their frustrations with university governance.”

Nine students began their illegal occupation of the president’s office last Friday and vowed to remain until all of their demands were answered. Thus far, at least two of their demands have been met, including immunity from trespassing charges, and Duke’s president promised to work with students on the remainder of their demands over the course of the semester.
