A group of Rutgers University students have taken their stand against Condoleezza Rice being their commencement speaker to the next level.
Fifty or so of them have staged a sit-in at an administrative building on the New Brunswick, N.J., campus, NJ.com reports. They are carrying signs with slogans like “No Honor for War Criminals” and “War Criminals Out,” objecting to the former Secretary of State’s involvement with the Iraq War, and they’re refusing to leave the building.
The students are stationed outside of Rutgers President Robert Barchi’s office.
According to the Associated Press, some faculty members have also expressed their opposition as the school prepares to give Rice an honorary doctorate on May 18.
She is being paid $35,000 for her speech.
