Students sitting in the Allen Building in protest revealed the banner above Saturday afternoon.

The students orchestrating an Allen Building sit-in to protest the incident involving Executive Tallman Trask and contract parking employee Shelvia Underwood as well as the treatment of workers at Duke unveiled a banner Saturday afternoon.

The banner reads "Occupied. No justice, no peace." Protestors said Friday they plan to occupy the Allen Building until Trask is terminated. Sue Wasiolek, assistant vice president for student affairs and dean of students, and Steve Nowicki, dean and vice provost for undergraduate education, entered the building to speak with the students inside. 

Protestors said that Wasiolek said students inside will be asked to leave Sunday and charged with trespassing if they do not. The students in the Allen Building said they plan to stay inside and will organize a protest if they are arrested.
