Gallaudet Video (5 of 5) on October 25, 2006

There was a rally by the students to explain what happened that morning and how they felt about the whole thing.

“These video clips are to give you a general feeling of what the day was like. There are a lot of hard to understand dialogue in these video clips. The signs are not always easy to understand but the urgency behind the protest is crystal clear. There will be more video clips that will show clear dialogue. What you are about to see is the gritty footage from the day.”

    Mind-boggling!!! I had tears in my eyes when i watched the students’ hands (Ryan and Chris), especially with their powerful feelings towards PPD/DPS ….and I am so proud of the protesters and their self-control altogether in the light of the bulldozer tragedy! Wave***wave***wave***

    The closing comments by Ryan Commerson – *hands waving*

    A friend commented to me two days ago she was impressed that this has been a nonviolent protest on the anti-JK camp’s part. Traditionally student protests (this is not exclusively student protest) tend to be violent but not this one. You all deserve a huge applause and you can hold your heads high knowing you are better than the administration who have resorted to violence several times.

    Hang in there and do not give up the nonviolence aspect of the protest.

    I was a student at Gally back in 1960 and am heartbroken to see the turmoil going on….been keeping close watch on all news and haven’t seen one word spoken about the money being spent on education and the costs are all paid by students…the students have their rights to speak up and let the BoT to understand where the money are coming from. Do the appropriate way to justify and ask JF to resign or things will never get any better….Gallaudet legacy will disappear without knowing and we need to protect the spirit of Gallaudet. To the BoT members: DON’T DELAY TOO LONG, ACT NOW FOR THE SAKE OF ALL GUFSSA AND THE LOYAL FRIENDS FROM EVERY DIRECTION.
