West entrance Whitmore Admin building around 6:30 PM
UMPD did not waste any time today in day three of the UMass sit in at Whitmore Administration building to protest their fossil fuel investment portfolio.
Just after 6:00 PM, official closing time for the building, they gave the dispersal order which about 150 took to heart and marched out of the building. But 19 did not, and were summarily arrested.

They will all be arraigned tomorrow in Eastern Hampshire District Court probably before Judge Estes, who was in a good mood this morning, joking about his Prius and whether the defendants took a bus or bicycle to get to his courtroom.
Tomorrow, with another 19 crowding the courtroom, he may not be as jovial.
