UGA Students & Faculty Hold ‘Die-In’ To Protest School Reopening

Videos by OutKick

Things are really heating up on the University of Georgia campus where the school released sexual relations guidance during these COVID times — the school is suggesting students wear masks during sex — and now I’m hearing about a ‘die-in’ on campus with zero reported deaths.

According to 11 Alive, event organizers “asked participants to silently lay – masked and socially-distant – in protest, to highlight “the real cost of reopening,” and question how many lives it would take to close campus.”

This die-in appears to have been organized after a UGA housing employee, Ana Cabrera, died due to COVID. The campus newspaper, Red & Black, reports “Cabrera tested positive for COVID-19 after receiving a test on July 15 and died on July 24. Nowhere in the report does it indicate where Cabrera came in contact with the virus.

What’s the ultimate goal of the local CWA chapter — United Campus Workers of Georgia? The chapter posted a petition demanding the university system ensure the following:

  • Masks will be provided and required for all of the campus community.  Faculty, staff and students will collaborate on COVID-19 prevention enforcement procedures without involvement of the campus police.  Given the disproportionate impact of COVID-19 as well as policing on communities of color, especially Black communities, this policy is a bare minimum to make the verbal commitment to diversity and equity on our campuses concrete.
  • No staff, student, or faculty member will be compelled to be face to face.  There will be no penalty, either subtle or overt, for requesting online-only engagement in the Fall.  This includes supervisor evaluations for faculty and staff and attendance grades for students.  No medical documentation will be required.
  • Free, frequent and accurate COVID-19 testing will be available for the entire campus community.  The single most effective pandemic control is isolation of those who are contagious.  The Board of Regents will take the safety of our students, staff, faculty and their loved ones as a prerequisite for the learning and working environment we deserve.

Let’s face it, this won’t be the last time we’re hearing from the UGA campus over the next couple weeks. Fall semester starts August 20 and it’s going to be hysteria to that date and beyond as the faculty union fires up the students who will then take part in things like a die-in.

  1. Let me say this very slowly so that even a College kid can understand it:

    – Attending college is optional in the United States (This is isn’t Russia is it Danny?)

    – Teaching at a college is optional in the United States

    – Working at a college is optional in the United States

    Please forward any questions to

  2. Listen if you don’t want to go don’t go it’s America and it is all about freedom this rona thing has gotten way out of hand the 24/7 fear mongering by the media has everyone afraid of their own shadow. Little perspective here CDC numbers as of April(4 months ago) for the FLU 56million cases,740000 hospitalized, 62000 dead. Yet i don,t think i have heard a peep about it we know the death numbers on the rona are juiced if they say you died of rona hospitals are paid more makes no sense but there you go. And this fauci dude is political always negative and has been in govt sense the 80s don’t know the last time he actually has seen patients in a practice probably been decades.

  3. The thing is. People don’t listen of read the facts. I just don’t know anymore. Live in fear I guess and think getting covid is a death sentence. Losers.

  4. The lunacy and the irrelevance of the current education system in this country are becoming more obvious each passing day. To use the woke term so popular for the moment — we should “re-imagine” education, and the new incarnation won’t be so kind to tax leeching public schools and universities, tenured teachers and instructors and the almighty teacher unions. It’ll be a lot harder to preach the Marxist gospel to a bunch of empty pews.

  5. How sad is it that most kids these days are not fighting to live a full life. Instead, they are too softheaded to see through the bullshit that their teachers, politicians and in some cases parents feed them. I cannot imagine being in my teens and twenties and participating in these weak-kneed activities. The educational system needs to be burned down and rebuilt.
