At 1 p.m. on Apr. 26, six pro-Palestine student protestors entered Old Main — Hamline's primary administrative building — with the intention to occupy the space until their demands were met. The protestors' demands included transparency regarding Hamline's investments, and divesting from corporations that supported Israel; a meeting with either President Kathleen Murray, a representative of the president or a Board of Trustees member; and for President Murray to make a statement condemning Israel's occupation in Gaza. From closest on left: Zach Linkous, June Gromis, Genavieve Billiet, Lydia Meier, Ivy Evrard and Clare Friar.
