Eagle Rock Patch reports that about 50 Occidental College students on Thursday afternoon participated in what was billed as a walk-out from classes to rally in support of the Occupy Wall Street movement. But, as Patch points out, no one actually walked out of class to attend the rally on the front steps of the administration building:
Although the event was billed as a protest walk-out from class on campus, none of the students actually boycotted classes. Rather, in something bordering a symbolic boycott, they were about 15 minutes late for the first afternoon class of the day, which begins at 1:30 p.m.
The tardy students protested one day after two of their classmates were arrested for participating in a downtown L.A. protest related to Occupy Wall Street, reports the Occidental Weekly student newspaper.
