A rally calling for justice for graduate student Kofi Adu-Brempong will take place today from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. on Turlington Plaza.
More than 400 students are expected to meet and march to Tigert Hall and the University Police Department, said Dave Schneider, an organizer of the event.
Schneider said the group will present a list of demands to the administration, including dropping the criminal charges against Adu-Brempong and eliminating UPD’s Critical Response Team.
He said the main purpose of the protest is to get the administration to stop ignoring the students, drop the charges and take radical action against police brutality.
”Our goal is obviously to get all of the demands met,” Schneider said.
UF spokewoman Janine Sikes said university officials are ready to welcome the students at both UPD and Tigert Hall.
However, Sikes said officials are restricted in what they can discuss with students until the results of the Florida Department of Law Enforcement investigation are released.
“We urge some patience at this time,” Sikes said.
