The Nation : 18 Arrested at Dartmouth

February 12, 1986

Eighteen Dartmouth College students were arrested in Hanover, N. H., when they tried to stop school officials from tearing down a shanty that had been erected on the college green as a symbol against apartheid. The arrests on criminal trespass charges capped three months of struggle between the school and groups of students over roughly $63 million in the college's investments in companies that do business in South Africa. Police led the students away in handcuffs as about 300 others looked on.
