Students at the University of Minnesota Twin Cities launched an “open and soft” occupation of the university’s Social Sciences Tower yesterday. Though the building was officially scheduled to close at 11 pm, they were able to stay through the night, and they seem to be consolidating and expanding their presence today.
The group has a blog and a Twitter account, both set up before the occupation. They released a list of demands this morning, and a schedule of activities for the day early this afternoon. They’re planning what one of them calls a “webcam date” with students occupying a building at the University of Wisconsin Milwaukee, and tonight is going to be movie night, too.
Oh, and someone in Iowa sent them pizzas for lunch. Seems like a pretty good day so far.
