Protests at Johns Hopkins University over a private police force and contracts with immigration officials have escalated as several students have chained themselves to stairs inside an administrative building.
At least four students chained themselves to stairs inside the Garland Hall administrative building on campus Wednesday, with the protests now reaching their 29th consecutive day. The building houses the offices of President Ronald Daniels.
“They have just walked out of this space,” Chelminski said.
The two added that the students chained to the steps are prepared to wait until university officials meet to discuss their demands, but none of the students chained to the steps commented, directing questions to dedicated media liaisons.
University officials have maintained that Daniels is open for a thoughtful discussion on the matters, but not with students or organizations that break university policy.
