These are some of @Schwinghamer's recent tweets re McGill University's protest protocol:

For #McGill to survive, it must be disrupted & the "normal activity" of the whole organism must change. The protocol must allow that.

#McGill Administrators who spend most of their lives in climate-controlled artificial environments will misjudge "tones of discourse"

#McGill Admin, any effective & lawful picket line will likely block the access to a building. Does this new protocol disallow picket lines?

[Answer: Yes]

#McGill Admin, protests inevitably move people from their "normal activity." Survival requires significant deviation from the status quo.
