Protests at Lincoln U. Over Lack of Library

November 2, 2009

Students at Lincoln University in Pennsylvania have been protesting lack of access to a library, poor food service, and the way police treated a student who organized their protests, The Philadelphia Daily News reported. The student -- who was inspired to get more vocal after finding a moth in her salad at the university cafeteria -- staged an 11-day hunger strike over the issues. The library has been closed for renovations since January 2008 and students must use trailers to get access to books, which the students say take 24 hours to arrive. Lincoln officials say that they are working to get the library project and other improvements completed, but will not comment on the protests.
