February 20, 2018 (Campus Protests)

A large-scale, planned demonstration by the Patriot Prayer group in Red Square attracted an estimated 400 protesters and counter-protesters.  A heavy police presence supplemented by a week of intense planning by campus departments, ensured that this rally and demonstration was peaceful.  The UW’s EOC was activated.  5 arrests were made, various planned events were cancelled or postponed due to the publicity. Minimal property damage occurred.
