A respectful protest ... oh, really?

The Deaf Community is wise. The Deaf Community is strong ... but the Deaf Community does not have the whole TRUTH:

Were you aware that a peaceful dinner was taking place in a ballroom of the GUKCC when students began banging on the glass doors and windows of the ballroom and then blocked all of the normal exits trapping innocent diners there late at night? Protesters were seen with bricks. It is so refreshing that these protesters quote such true peacemakers and giants as Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and Mahatma Ghandi. Pity they have no idea how to act like them.

No we weren't aware. Thank you for sharing with us all of the other side of the story.

As on in atttendance at the dinner I can say this is true. Students pounded on windows and doors disrupting the dinner and causing alarm to guests. Worse they blockaded the exit doors. When dinner concluded guests had to be taken out through the kitchen in small groups for fear of physical confrontation with protestors. The Plunkett family was there and too was a very distinguised Japanese artist and educator who had come all the way from Japan with his wife who was in wheelchair. These people did not deserve to be treated with such disrespect and put in possible danger by having exits blocked. This is not peaceful respectful protest.
