Interview with Tony Gittens
QUESTION 21
JUDY RICHARDSON:

Talk about the fear you had that the police might be called on campus. And what was the context of that fear? I mean, had they been called on other universities?

TONY GITTENS:

The, the context, well--

JUDY RICHARDSON:

If you could just say, "You were afraid that the police would be called."

TONY GITTENS:

Well that wasn't too true.

JUDY RICHARDSON:

Oh OK. Go ahead--

TONY GITTENS:

About what?

JUDY RICHARDSON:

However you want to answer--

TONY GITTENS:

Oh. There, there was, there was not, there was some concern that the police would be called in. However we felt that we had so much community support that there was so much recognition on the part of the media who--whom were covering this event. You know in the nightly news. Ah, that, ah, no force, that the university was not going to use any force to, ah, to remove us. Ah, that so much community support had come to us that, you know we felt, pretty safe that no police were going to be called in.
