“You should know what your money supports.”
These students seem determined to annoy as many people as possible.
Syracuse University protesters crash luncheon; students allowed to make their case
A group of #NotAgainSU student protesters crashed a luncheon Saturday for Syracuse University donors and parents.
Most of the students were barred from entering, but a few were let into the luncheon at Syracuse University’s Maxwell School, protesters said on the #NotAgainSU Twitter account. The university denies any students were barred from the event.
One student, when given a chance, faced the room and calmly said: You should know what your money supports.
“The money is not being allocated to any people of color. It is not being allocated to people who are disabled,” the student said in a video posted on Instagram. “And this school has been constantly lying to the blogs and the media, trying to make us look like we are the bad guys, when really, the administration has been avoiding us.”
#NotAgainSU has been occupying Crouse-Hinds Hall since Feb. 17, protesting what they say is racism and prejudice on campus. The group, which was formed after a rash of racist, anti-Semitic graffiti was found on campus during the fall semester, has vowed to stay inside the building until administrators meet their demands.
