Saint Louis University to erect monument honoring anti-police protest
by Nathan Rubbelke - Saint Louis University on February 3, 2015

FIX FEATURE

Saint Louis University has commissioned a sculpture to be erected on campus that administrators say they hope "captures the spirit and importance" of a weeklong "Occupy SLU" protest last fall on the urban campus that decried oppression, racism, racial profiling and police tactics.

For six days in mid-October, community activists refused to leave the St. Louis campus in a protest intended as an extension of the summertime riots that had wracked nearby Ferguson over the police shooting of Michael Brown.

Three social justice groups - Tribe X, the Metro St. Louis Coalition for Inclusion and Equality, and the Black Student Alliance - took over the campus and lived in tents around its clock tower.

Flying an upside-down American flag, they gave speeches and "teach ins" on topics such as "conscious awakening, systematic oppression, white supremacy, and students' responsibility to the community," according to a YouTube video that documented the demonstration.
