SAS members chain themselves to door handles of Admin. building in protest to Likins

Eight people, including six members of Students Against Sweatshops, were arrested yesterday afternoon after an eight-hour demonstration in which they chained themselves to the four main entrances to the Administration building.

SAS members Jesse Kirchner, linguistics sophomore; Lydia Lester, linguistics junior; Kent Walker, political science junior; Gabe Kirchner, sociology senior; Rachel Wilson, psychology graduate student; and Arne Ekstrom, neurological sciences graduate student were arrested by the University of Arizona Police Department on misdemeanor charges of interfering with the peaceful conduct of an educational facility.

Tucson community members Paula Arnquist, a member of the Southern Arizona Alliance for Economic Justice, and Alicia Weber, a former SAS member, were also arrested on the same charge. All eight protesters were released yesterday afternoon from Pima County pre-trial services and must appear in Pima County Court on Nov. 30 at 8:30 a.m.

"We're really tired, we're hungry and we all want beer," Wilson said yesterday afternoon.

It appears as though George W. Bush is the president-elect of the United States of America. Let us congratulate the winner, even though we endorsed his chief opponent.
