UNC medical school students hold 'die-in'
Posted December 10, 2014
CHAPEL HILL, N.C. — About 100 students at the University of North Carolina School of Medicine participated in a "die-in" on Wednesday to protest the lack of indictments in the deaths of two unarmed black men killed by police officers.
The protest, held at Bondurant Hall, also marked International Human Rights Day.
The protest was over the deaths of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Mo., and Eric Garner in New York. Brown was shot to death, and Garner died in a chokehold. Grand juries declined to indict either police officer.
The UNC die-in was one of many protests scheduled Wednesday at medical schools throughout the country. Others were held in New York, Boston, Cleveland, Los Angeles and Chicago.
