[Breaking: The University lifted the suspensions Wednesday evening] Campus police are also treating them harshly.

Syracuse, NY - Students with #NotAgainSU, who have been protesting racism and hate incidents on campus that are not being punished, are currently occupying the admissions building, Crouse-Hinds Hall. Their action began yesterday. Last night when the university ordered them to leave at closing time and move their action to the library, which is open twenty-four hours a day, the students refused. Today, the students remain in Crouse-Hinds Hall, but rather than listening to their concerns, the university is limiting access to the building to employees only and preventing anyone from bringing food inside. The students say they are hungry. They haven't eaten since Monday afternoon. They also report that the building is cold and that police are acting violently.
