Four students arrested protesting 'American Sniper' Friday night movie
by Mona Beydoun
Four students were arrested after disrupting the planned showing of "American Sniper" Friday evening in the EMU Student Center Auditorium. The film had begun but was stopped and eventually cancelled. The 10 p.m. showing was cancelled as well.
Ahmed Abbas, earning his Ph.D. in psychology, Layali Alsadah, junior majoring in psychology, Jenna Hamed, senior majoring in apparel and textiles merchandise, and Sabreen Dari, junior majoring in psychology, worked with 35 other students to shut down the 8 p.m. and 10 p.m. showings of the Academy Award-winning film.
The protesters filed onto the stage under the screen and held up two signs. One read, "Is this your idea of dialogue?" and the other one had the definition of propaganda.
