Karl Rove has left the building.  Despite protesters' best efforts, as seen in the photos and video below , Rove was able to leave through a side exit of Seaman Hall through the Athenaeum's rooftop bridge.

The protesters, overwhelmingly non-CMCers, sat outside the Athenaeum for nearly five hours-- from before 5 PM to at least 9:30 PM-- blocking off exits, beating drums, and chanting during Rove's speech.

(Edited September 17. The Forum apologizes for anonymously making generalizations about the protesters. In the future it will at least attribute a writer's name when it gently mocks Pitzer students)
