Protests continue for third straight night outside UNL fraternity house

LINCOLN, Neb. -- Another night of demonstrations outside the Phi Gamma Delta fraternity house, as the protests moved into night three.

The protests took a different tone from the previous two nights. Students and supporters shared personal testimony from the steps of the Nebraska Union, across from the Fiji House on the campus of UNL.

Chancellor Ronnie Green temporarily suspended the fraternity, already on probation for previous violations of university policy, on Wednesday.

The move came after a sexual assault was reported at the Fiji House earlier this week.

UNL officials on Thursday confirmed that the accuser is a 17-year-old woman and university police are handling the investigation independently.

A Change.org petition calling for UNL to ban Fiji forever has more than 300,000 signatures.
