Five LSU Students Arrested At CIA Protest

October 2, 1987

BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) _ Five students were arrested Thursday as they tried to disrupt job interviews being conducted by the Central Intelligence Agency at Louisiana State University, officials said.

The arrests followed an all-night vigil and a march by about 40 students, said David F. Hull Jr., associate vice chancellor for student affairs.

Hull said the students had informed officials in advance that they planned to try to disrupt the interviews peacefully.

The arrests took place at the university’s placement office after students entered the building and ignored warnings by LSU police that they would not be allowed to disrupt the interviews, Hull said.

The students offered no resistance and were taken to campus police headquarters where they were issued court summons on misdemeanor charges of disrupting an institution of higher education, Hull said.
