Roop said Garzon and he are planning to attend next week's Board of Trustees meeting to present their argument once more. The also plan on writing letters and continuing action.
The crowd outside has doubled in the last 10 minutes as students prepare for the automatic doors to once again become automatic. As newcomers arrive, the protestors explain how they've been out here for the last seven hours and 45 minutes.
"What time is it guys?" Garzon asks the crowd.
"7:23!" they shout back.
"Why aren't we inside?" she asks.
"Because the library's closed!" the crowd answers.
As the doors to the library open and students make their way inside, the protestors cheer.
"We win!" a few of them yell.
Some get up and make their way home as others walk inside to prepare for another day of classes.
"Make sure you get to a printer before a line forms!" someone shouts.
