The students who are now occupying the Fresno State University library held a press conference at 10 p.m. this evening. The press conference was held on the main floor of the library, where 75 - 100 students are saying they will not leave. The administration has locked the doors allowing people to leave, but not return. There are about 50 people standing outside in the rain, chanting and holding signs in solidarity with the students.

The photos below show the scene just before the press conference was held, as the occupying students inside were at the front doors (which are glass). Chanting was going back and forth between those occupying the library and their supporters outside.

Jamie SanAndres is the student leader reading the statement.
