“will remain in Garland through final exams and the summer months, if need be”
If someone came to this protest and started throwing things at these students, who are now sitting ducks, who would they call?
The College Fix reports:
Johns Hopkins protesters chain themselves to administrative building to protest police, ICE
Student protesters at Johns Hopkins University have taken to chaining themselves to stairwells in the campus’s main administrative building to protest the private campus police force and the school’s contracts with Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE).
The sit-in at Garland Hall has reached a month in duration, but demonstrators believe this new tactic “will force the administration to [finally] begin negotiations,” The News-Letter reports.
Protester Adela Chelminski of the group Hopkins Coalition Against ICE said the occupiers “felt ignored” by campus officials and that their “continual demands for negotiations were rebuffed.” She added that protesters were “not going anywhere” and will remain in Garland through final exams and the summer months, if need be.
The Baltimore Sun reports Johns Hopkins President Ronald Daniels stated in a campus-wide letter on Friday that the situation in Garland had been “dramatically escalated” by the protesters and had become a “health and safety” issue.
