5 arrested at UNC-CH sit-in“– N & O (With no mention of the fact that Chancellor Moeser expressly did not allow –very different from “steered away,” as they say– the LLCAC to discuss the DSP the past year after rejecting it in August 2007, no mention of the fact that we have been campaigning for three years, again quoting Prof Hornstein out of context despite his support and vote for the DSP; also, Mirza did not go limp in a chair– she was dragged into the anteroom by her arms and then dragged into a chair, then dragged out by her right arm and the chair and dragged into the van by both her arms.)
