Due to considerable cuts in their funding, the Wizarding Academy of Dramatic Arts would have to suffer years of meager programs instead of offering the superior quality education they had been providing for the past decade. Quickly, students, professors and community members had rallied around the academy hoping that their protest might bring light to the importance of the arts.
Arnaud had chosen to attend the protest as a citizen rather than to do so in a professional capacity. While he knew the event deserved media coverage, he was confident that a colleague of his had already been assigned to the protest.
The crowd was modest but determined. Most of the attendees had signs expressing their outrage and chants that emphasized their already bold punctuation marks. Holding his own sign Arnaud walked with them and chanted when he was not chatting with other participants.
