students & activists protest cheney’s visit to byu

from raw story: A group of 100-150 students and faculty gathered at Brigham Young University in Provo, Utah, to protest the commencement speech of Vice President Dick Cheney at the Mormon institution.

The protesters had to stand quietly because university rules dictated that no chants or loud speeches were permitted.

Still, the protesters had messages to get across.

“Dick Cheney could not be admitted as a BYU student because of the violations of our honor code,” said one professor to KSL-TV.

While chants were heard, at the end of their protest, the group sang the “Star-Spangled Banner.”

The following video clips are from CNN’s American Morning, KSL-TV, and ABC Channel 4 News.
