2 Protesters Arrested At UConn
Opposing groups supporting and opposing abortion clashed this morning at the University of Connecticut.
A University spokesperson says a pro-life group, the Center for Bio-ethical Reform Northeast had rented space for two days, to set up posters and a truck with anti-abortion illustrations as part of its “Genocide Awareness Project.” This was the second day of the exhibit on Fairfield Way, next to the student union.
Some pro-choice students who objected to the exhibit staged a counter-protest. Campus police say they met with both sides, who agreed each could present its message in a separate space, and most of the 15 to 20 pro-choice demonstrators left for an adjacent space, Campus police say two people refused to leave, and were arrested for criminal trespass.
