University of New Orleans Occupied!

by

NEW ORLEANS, Louisiana – At 7am (CST) the Milneburg Hall at the University of New Orleans was occupied. However, by 8:40am, UNO PD were on the scene and removed the occupiers. While none of the occupiers were arrested then, at least 2 students have been arrested today during the walkout. Organizers are asking people to call the UNO PD to demand they release the students (UNO PD 504-280-6666). “They were maced and beaten, and then arrested, for peacefully protesting!” More information is available at occupyLA.
