Protesters wore yellow squares pinned to their jackets as a campaign symbol and most of the trees on the campus have yellow ribbons tied in the branches.

Protesters then went into Sussex House where the Vice Chancellor's office is and held the building until riot police were sent in. The police were met with chants of "hands off our campus".
