Ten minutes before the PA system went live, University of Vermont senior Danny Graham glanced across what appeared to be a slender turnout Tuesday afternoon.
"Recruiting activists isn't a problem, but getting new people is," he said.
"A lot of people know the issues, but it's very hard to get them to do anything," Graham added. "The UVM community has evolved from being very activist to one that's more interested in being 'groovy-UV.' We're living in an apathetic culture."
The crowd grew larger at the front steps of the Bailey/Howe Library, despite a light rain.
