UVa Students Arrested

17 students at UVa were arrested for staging a peaceful sit-in asking for a living wage to be paid to university employees. This comes after they had been denied food, internet access, and access to academic and religious books over the course of the sit-in. The president of the university justified these arrests by saying that they were for the "protection of the protesters" and because "they were protesting at cost to themselves and their families over the holiday weekend."
