Port Angeles: College students protest closed-door council session

PORT ANGELES – A closed-door session of the Peninsula College Associated Student Council upset nearly a dozen students Thursday, prompting a protest outside the student union building.

Students carried picket signs, shouted at council leaders and climbed fences surrounding construction areas at the Pirate Union Building, or PUB, trying to gain access to the meeting.

Campus security officers were called to the union building shortly before the meeting began at noon.

At least one student was escorted out of a construction area for “safety reasons,”‘ a Peninsula College official said late Thursday.

Nobody was arrested during the protest.
