Clerk: Haverford students on strike to protest killing of Walter Wallace Jr.

 Following an October 28th march, the majority of Haverford College students went on strike to protest last weeks police killing of Walter Wallace Jr. The student paper The Clerk reports that participating students were being asked by organizers to halt "their involvement with any college-related activities, including attending classes, working on-campus jobs, and participating in extracurriculars or athletics."

Organizers, listed in the original email call as "Women of Color House, Black Students Refusing Further Inaction, [and] the Black Student League," ended their call for the strike with a list of 12 demands including the resignation of the schools Chief Diversity Officer and her replacement by a BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, or Person of Color) candidate.
