Students Overtake New School

The New School, the university in New York City, was overtaken by students this morning in a mass protest against college president Bob Kerrey. The confrontation was so heated that police in full riot gear stormed the building on Fifth Avenue to arrest 19 protesters for trespassing. Police described the incident as "orderly" but students claim pepper spray was used to round up demonstrators. According to City Room, the students have listed the resignation of three top officials, including Kerrey, among their eight demands.
