NYU Occupation Floor-Cam Uprises!
The Kimmel Center Occupation Force has lifted its camera! Representatives confirm that they are "staying in the building until all their demands are met," and lead from the balcony (from which they have dropped a banner) onlookers in shouts of "Whose school? Our school!" and "Take back NYU!" and cry that "We need you, we love you, we want you to join us." A commenter says, "I like your glasses." Some organizations, including "Northern Virginia SDS," offer solidarity. Now they're reading some more demands, including a rethink of having Coca-Cola in NYU facilities because of their politics. There will be a press conference at 5 p.m.... and the camera blinks off.
