    Nope. Can you tell me what union is associated with a student organization known as The United Council of UW Students?

    So, it's OK to **** with a ceremony to honor Special Olympians... as long as you don't **** with the Special Olympics themselves???

    Certainly... The United Council of UW Students. That is the name of a student union.

    Press Releases - United Council of UW Students
    To clarify events from today: United Council’s Day of Action around Higher Education Funding and how the Voter ID bill affects students consisted of a die-in and march around the Capitol. Any actions happening later in the day are outside the scope of UC’s day of action and was not endorsed or supported by the organization. If anyone has questions, feel free to give the office a call.
    Essentially a lie, as they provided the zombie shirts and makeup the protestors used.

    Didn't say that. A lot of people, and I quoted some of them, said they interrupted the Special Olympics.

    And I agreed that was 'technically' incorrect. So you agree then that interrupting the ceremony was wrong?

    A student organization, not a union. You're really grasping.

    When I went to college, we had a student union building where we could go to hang out, get a soft drink, relax, grab a burger. Do you really think that was a union headquarters?

    Association | Define Association at Dictionary.com
    an organization of people with a common purpose and having a formal structure.
    Sounds like a union to me...

    Union - definition of Union by the Free Online Dictionary, Thesaurus and Encyclopedia.
    A combination so formed, especially an alliance or confederation of people, parties, or political entities for mutual interest or benefit.
