Swarthmore Students Upset at Punishment for Sit-In Protest at Administrative Offices

Apparently, the notion of consequences escaped these Millennial college students at Swarthmore:

Last month, members of the anti-fossil fuel group Mountain Justice occupied Chief Investment Officer Mark C. Amstutz’s office to denounce the school’s investments in fossil fuels. This past week, five of the group were cited for their (alleged) refusal to vacate the premises.

According to Philly.com, the quintet face punishment ranging from a warning to probation…

Will Marchese, one of the five students cited, griped that even a warning would be “against college values.” He said the occupiers didn’t do anything “inappropriate,” and “actually helped Amstutz shred documents.”
