Purdue students that are not happy with Governor Mitch Daniels’ appointment as University president are planning a “soap bubble” protest Tuesday at the school during a speech his giving at Purdue’s Loeb Theatre in West Lafayette, IN.
According to an e-mail sent out to the media, the Society for an Open, Accountable Purdue (SOAP) plans to protest the Governor’s speech by holding up signs and blowing bubbles.
The Governor is scheduled to speak at 2:30 p.m. It is unclear if they will do the bubble blowing in the Theatre while Daniels is speaking.
The organization has also asked to be put on the agenda for Thursday’s State Ethics Commission meeting to protest the Governor’s hiring by the Purdue Board of Trustees; a number of them were Daniels appointments.
