Protesters arrested after disrupting ‘American Sniper’ showing at Eastern Michigan University

Four students were arrested at Eastern Michigan University on Friday after disrupting a screening of “American Sniper.”

Roughly 35 students walked onto the stage at the Student Center Auditorium to protest the 8 p.m. screening, which was briefly disrupted. Protesters held signs that defined propaganda and asked, “Is this your idea of dialogue?” the university’s student newspaper The Echo reported.

Protest leaders Ahmed Abbas, Layali Alsadah, Jenna Hamed and Sabreen Dari were arrested for disturbing the peace. They were released 40 minutes later, and no charges were filed, The Echo reported.

The Friday 10 p.m. showing was later canceled. University spokesman Geoff Larcom told Campus Reform that the second showing was canceled because of the late time and until there is further discussion about the controversial film.

Student Body President Desmond Miller, however, said the decision to cancel the second showing was a joint-decision he made with EMU President Susan Martin, Associate Vice President of Student Affairs Calvin Phillips and Campus Life coordinator of arts, entertainment and marketing Gregg Costanzo, Campus Reform reported.
