Analysis/Reflection

As is shown in some of the comments on the image, students are not happy about the ways in which administration is conveying the sit in. The caption explains that students are occupying the AGC, but it neglects to inform its reader of the reason for students' occupation. Moreover, this item shows the beginning stages of admin controlling the narrative of the occupation.
