Anti-Chief Protestors Disrupt U Of I Board Of Trustees Meeting
04 May 2005 23:01 GMT
For more than a decade the U of I Board of Trustees (BOT)has refused to even propose- much less vote upon- a resolution to eliminate "Chief Illiniwek". During the public comment session of their meeting this morning, however, the BOT was forced to confront the issue when members of the Progressive Resource/Action Cooperative demanded the BOT sign a resolution to eliminate the "Chief" and then disrupted the meeting by chanting "No Excuse, No Delay, Ban the Chief Today!" after the BOT refused to take action.
