Marching students pause to pose in front of Student Union
Why is it protests at UMass always seem to start at high noon an end pretty much by 2:00 PM?
At least the one at Amherst College went on for a few days and actually occupied a building (Frost Library) with students of color pulling a good old fashioned sit in. Of course that ended recently and a month from now pretty much everyone will forget what it was over in the first place.
The UMass protest this afternoon was well organized, although the followers could have used enunciation lessons as they marched to the Student Union, as it was hard to understand what they were chanting.

So whatever they were protesting, the assistant Chancellor promised to get back to them by Friday with an emailed response.
