A group of students at the University of California, Berkeley participated in a silent demonstration on Tuesday to protest parts of a national campus sexual assault conference that they didn’t like.
Among the things the angry students did not appreciate is “fair process” for people accused of committing sexual assaults. The students, who placed duct tape over their mouths and held signs, charged that due process for such defendants is “insensitive,” reports The Daily Californian, the UC Berkeley campus newspaper.
The two-day national conference took place this week at the Berkeley DoubleTree Hotel.
The silent protest occurred during a panel discussion on ways to safeguard due process during sexual misconduct investigations.
