This morning, students with the Black Student Union at UCSD and allies
began a sit-in at their Chancellor’s office demanding action, after a
noose was found in Geisel Library. Students are demanding that the
campus be closed down for the safety of students.
Beginning around 1:50pm, Afrikan Student Union and at least 100 people
are occupying Murphy Hall, the administrative building of UCLA. They are
meeting with the chancellor as we speak in order to call for the
following, in light of the racist incidents at UCSD:
1. Closure of UCSD until there is a full investigation of events
surrounding Compton Cook Out and the noose left hanging in
2. Expulsion of offending students and dismantling of The Koala newspaper.
3. Diversity needs be met by March 4th. (see BSU demands from UCSD)
