Journalist Lee Fang was at the scene of a protest of the chancellor last night. As Katehi held a press conference about the police incident inside a campus building, hundreds of students amassed outside in protest. Katehi then refused to leave, trying to form the impression that hostile students were trying to block her inside.
The students formed a large gap to give the chancellor space to leave. Finally, after the students sat down and locked arms, she decided to leave. As she walked to her car, the students sat silent, shaming her. Watch it:
Fang asked Katehi if she felt threatened by the students. “No, no,” she replied.
