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.
