Students Peacefully Gather in front of Kohl Center

Last night, after word of Eric Garner’s murderer not being put on trial, though his death was caught on tape, students gathered in solidarity in front of the Kohl Center in a silent vigil.

The vigil was organized by MSC Intern and UW Sophomore Eric Newble Jr who was quoted as saying, “When I found out about [the Darren Wilson indictment], I was really feeling like I wanted to get people together, because I felt like a lot of people in Madison who were reeling from that event, but didn’t feel like they had an outlet or community that was visible in that way.”

At the height of the peaceful protest, nearly 300 people were gathered, some holding signs, all standing silently, facing the Kohl Center awaiting those leaving the game.
