BLOOMINGTON, Ind. (AP) _ Protesters on Indiana University's main campus in Bloomington have marched in support of tuition cuts and other demands while university trustees met on campus.
The Herald-Times reports campus police allowed five protesters at a time to enter the building where the trustees met. The trustees conducted their business and adjourned without incident.
A group of about 200 protesters began a march about noon. At one point some walked throughout Ballantine Hall, a large academic building, and entered classrooms. One woman yelled to students, ``Get out of the class and into the street, join the strike.''
Protest organizers called for a general strike Thursday and Friday to demand tuition cuts, fee eliminations, more African-American enrollment, and a halt to parking privatization on the Bloomington and Indianapolis campuses.
