PR: Velez Arocho buckles to anti-ROTC students

The camp sites that were set up by students last semester in opposition of the ROTC program’s at the Mayaguez campus were being dismantled Wednesday after proterstors reached an agreement with dean Jorge Ivan Velez Arocho.
"The ROTC’s will remain in their old buildings and will also move into the Army ROTC’s installations in the Sanchez building,” said the dean in his letter.
However, the agreement doesn’t guarantee that further conflict won’t occur given that the ROTC will keep operating inside the campus. Protest had rocked the university for about a year.
Lesson to be learned: no compromising with terrorists.
