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.
