Disrupting Board of Regents meeting

According to Nuala Cacek on October 8 2021, about a dozen members of the Students for a Democratic Society at the University of Minnesota disrupted a meeting of the UMN Board of Regents to demand the implementation of a Campus Civilian Police Accountability Council (Campus CPAC).

“Students at the University of Minnesota deserve agency in regard to our so-called public safety,” said main speaker, Emma Hjelle, who also called for “a CPAC as a means to disarm, demilitarize and defund the University of Minnesota Police Department.”

As the protesters exited the meeting after Hjelle’s speech, they demanded a Campus CPAC by chanting “What do we want? Community control! When do we want it? Now!”[1]

Anti-police

Minneapolis, MN - On May 3 2018, around two dozen people gathered to protest the increased militarization of the University of Minnesota Police Department. The rally, held by Students for a Democratic Society, was part of a broader campaign to disarm the UMPD.

“We think that this is a perfect opportunity for the University to leverage themselves on a progressive course in society” and “nip in the bud any circumstances where police can murder people,” said SDS member Marty Branyon.

Several people spoke, including Loretta VanPelt from the FRSO, Rahsaan Mahadeo from Differences Organized, and Olivia Crull from SDS. Students chanted calling for the disarmament and dissolution of the UMPD.[2]
