Vehement Students Rally for More Causes to Protest
EVANSTON, Il. - A group of more than 150 Northwestern students marched on Sheridan Road today, holding signs and chanting demands for more injustices to protest. The Northwestern student body, which has avidly spoken out in the past against issues of racism, sexism and administrative failure, is voicing demands for another injustice against which they can channel their anger.
The protest, apparently directed at no one in particular, began at 1 p.m. as the students moved south on Sheridan Road toward the arch, chanting, “More injustice, more injustice.” The group converged at The Rock, where the protest organizers with megaphones voiced their demands.
According to student leaders, Northwestern University has failed as a school where students are able to incessantly protest for social justice.
“We will not rest until we are heard,” shouted Kim Allister, a Weinberg sophomore involved in the protest. “For too long we have gone without an issue worth protesting. It has to end.”
The savage crowd held signs which appeared to be simply modified from previous protests, demanding, “NO MORE RACISM!”
Student activists, who have in recent weeks handed out flyers demanding drastic reforms to campus flower variety and campus wildlife discrimination, are apparently running out of causes against which to rally.
“I haven’t had a protest related cover photo in nearly two weeks,” said Bienen sophomore Ally Simonson, whose current cover photo is of Lake Michigan. “This is a serious issue on campus that needs to be fixed.”
