Students involved with Occupy UT and the Make UT Sweatshop-Free Coalition have entered President Powers’ office at the main building of the University of Texas at Austin for a sit-in protest.

Five police officers are on the scene but are keeping their distance for now. Sit-in students have been told that if they use the restroom inside the UT Tower, located on the first floor, they will not be allowed to return and may face arrest. We’ll keep you updated as we get more information.

4:31pm: It has been confirmed that 18 students are currently inside the UT Tower.

4:42pm: The reason for protest is students want to make UT a sweatshop-free school.

4:48pm: Live stream abruptly ended.
