100 Walk Out on John Ashcroft Speech

About 13 minutes into former attorney general John Ashcroft’s speech at Cornell University’s Statler Hall a couple of days ago, “more than 100 students and Ithaca community members stood up from their seats, turned their backs to Ashcroft and placed black shrouds over their heads. The protesters stood in silence for another 14 minutes before walking out of his speech together.”

There’s more at the HuffPo from Michael Siegel who says, “We hope to inspire similar resistance wherever these architects of oppression go. Please spread the word – resistance lives!”
