Protesters Demand Reimbursement for Arrests

University of Michigan students, arrested and fined for trespassing, are demanding reimbursement from the school's president.


University of Michigan students who were arrested and fined for trespassing at an April sit-in are now demanding reimbursement from the school's president, the Michigan Daily reports. The students—who want the university to enforce strict labor standards on the companies that make university-licensed apparel—claim the arrests were unprecedented ("people at this university haven't been arrested for peaceful protest in 30 years"). The Daily report offers no comment from the university, but the protesters blame the administration for the $6,120 in fines the 12 students incurred. Let's just hope they kept their receipts.
