[VIDEO] “We Are, The Revolution:” A Week Of Protests

As chronicled last week, the lack of an indictment for officer Darren Wilson in Ferguson, Mo. sparked national protests to which Penn State’s campus was no stranger. A large group of vocal citizens challenged America’s justice system throughout the week through die-in’s, a modern take on the “stand-in” concept used years ago, at Old Main, the HUB, and the Library. These protests sparked debate, hatred, and support from both sides.

In this video documentary, we followed the process of the protests’ leadership to better understand what their message was. As a group, the protestors felt subjugated, and they hoped to bring that to light. Until they achieve change, the protests’ organizers and those involved plan to continue fighting for what they think is right.
