UVM Students Protest Cuts 

Mike Ives reports:


Several hundred students attended a budget-related walk-out/protest today at the University of Vermont. Organized by the campus group Students Stand Up, the event featured both faculty and student speakers. A few students held massive cardboard signs with life-sized cut-outs that read, "MISSING FACULTY" and "MISSING STAFF." One student shouted into a megaphone. A white sheet hanging from the Davis Center read, "VETOFOGEL," referring to UVM President Dan Fogel.

For background on the walk-out/protest, see Tim Johnson's coverage for the Burlington Free Press. See also Shay Totten's most recent "Fair Game" column.

I shot several videos at today's event and pasted two here. In one, I interview Nathan Stehle, a sophomore political science and philosophy major. The other video features freshmen Laura Lee Graffman, Juliet Kibbe and Heather Graig.
