University of Missouri student and ESPN photojournalist Tim Tai argues with students at University of Missouri, Monday, November 9, 2015. Just earlier, Tim Wolfe had resigned as the University of Missouri System president. Minutes later students created a human barrier between the ConcernedStudent tent village and about 50+ student and national journalists.

I took this video when I was covering the event as a citizen journalist.

The next day ConcernedStudent took down its media-free safe space, and issued flyers saying, "The media is important to tell our story and experiences at Mizzou to the world, let's welcome and thank them."

Seen in the Video: Assistant Director of Greek Life, Janna Basler; Assistant Professor Dr. Melissa Click; Storm Ervin, Concerned Student original 11 member.
