Syracuse U. Cancels Suspensions for Students Who Occupied Administration Building

“according to a university spokesperson”

That was fast. These students were suspended about 24 hours ago and now it’s over. What happened?

CNY Central reports:

Syracuse University lifts suspension on student protestors

Suspensions for a group of Syracuse University students protesting racial injustice on campus have been lifted, according to a university spokesperson.

The protests started again Monday evening at Crouse-Hinds Hall and included members of the #NotAgainSU movement.

This movement was formed after a series of racial incidents and racist graffiti was found on the campus last fall.

The interim suspensions were issued after students refused to leave a sit-in protest at Crouse-Hinds Hall on Monday.

Students originally gathered during the building’s legal hours of operation: from 7 am to 9 pm, but school officials told demonstrators they could continue protesting at Bird Library because it is open 24 hours. They were told they could return to Crouse-Hinds Hall in the morning, according to SU.

Comments

Of course the University caved in and the trespassers who refused to vacate the Admin Building will get no punishment whatsoever.

The police should have cleared the trespassers out using shotguns!

Raise your hand if you’re surprised.

Wimps. Just when I thought administrators had developed a little spine, I was mistaken.
