Dancing Against SweatShops

About 25 University of Montana students staged a "dance-in" in their president's office yesterday. The intrusion, meant to protest the school's purchases of apparel made in sweatshops, lasted approximately five minutes, the Montana Kaimin reports. "This isn't OK," an assistant to the president told the dancing students, who had gathered in the administrative offices at 9 a.m. "I'd like you all to go back to the lobby." They ignored her and kept dancing, even through a loud alarm, until campus safety arrived to escort them out, the Kaimin reports.
