Succesful Sit-In at Corbally's Office
by Champaign-Urbana Coalition Against Apartheid
Urbana, Illinois, United States
Early May 1978
The leaflet says last Monday, May 1 at 1 o'clock, we (numbering 120) walked into President Corbally's office to demand a debate on University of Illinois' South African invest policy. Paul Doebel, Vice-Chancellor for Administrative Affairs, announced that a University of Illinois representative would be available for public debate. Having had the administration bow to our demands, we left en masse. We are an organization of students and local people working to support Africans in their fight against apartheid. Divest now!!!
