Urey Hall Takeover

Title

Urey Hall Takeover

Description

[D]isparate antiwar groups decided to do a joint sit in of Urey Hall — a science building — one of the centers of the University's complicity with war, as many of the offices of those professors with DOD contracts were located there.

There was no plan to do damage to the building or to the offices, and none occurred. We just wanted to close down this center of the war — at least temporarily (Dr Anonymouse, 2009).
