Not only that, but they did what most protests don't seem to do. Instead of preaching to the choir, the educated the public. From YDEMS:
Several people came up to us and asked questions, like "What's Waterboarding?" or "What does Dick Cheney have to do with Habeas Corpus?" Other's sat down next to us and tried to understand why we are protesting. Overall, I think the protest was a great success and the one on Apr. 26 should be even better.
It's not often that I have praise for BYU. But I'll do it this time...
