At Appalachian State University in Boone, students ended their occupation of the administration building this week. Student activists had been in the building for six days, demanding their chancellor to make a public statement opposing House Bill 2. ¬†Previously they marched in the streets, blocked traffic, and demonstrated outside Chancellor Everts’ house. Everts did release a statement against HB2 but did not explicitly offer amnesty to employees who helped the students, which was one of the protestors’ demands.
