More than 20 HU students stage walk out
More than 20 Hampton University students walked out of class at noon Wednesday, making a political statement on a host of issues, including their opposition to President Bush's policies.
The group gathered in the university's student center where they distributed handouts, stickers and pins to other students. They also explained the reason for the walkout, which was part of an effort by World Can't Wait, a liberal group that has called on the president to resign.
The walkout called for college students and people in the workplace to leave their jobs and campuses in protest of the war and such other issues as the government's response to Hurricane Katrina.
