Yesterday at lunch, there was a student protest that was declared to be a “response to the Sean Bell verdict, its public reception, and its relation to past racist events that have occurred on campus with Public Safety, Middletown Police, the Ride, and the student body.”
Are you angry about yesterday’s protest and frustrated you couldn’t walk up the stairs easily to get lunch? Furious at our so-called justice system for acquitting murderers? In support of police relying on their own judgement no matter what? Do you think the Sean Bell verdict has racist implications that extend beyond itself and even to the Wesleyan campus?
Regardless of the views or opinions that you have, Stephanie Quainoo ’10 invites you to attend a forum being held to “discuss the issues of the case, the reactions to the protest and to answer any questions regarding those events on campus cited on the platform of the protesters. This is important as we would like all members of the student body to come together to engage each other in a constructive dialogue that will allow us to build a safe community at Wesleyan through much-needed debate and discourse.”
When: Tonight, Tuesday May 6, at 7 pm
