Four people were arrested Saturday in a demonstration outside the University of Virginia's Phi Kappa Psi fraternity house, WVIR, Charlottesville, reported. The TV station posted photos to its Twitter account Saturday that showed multiple people being arrested after picketing the university's handling of an alleged 2012 gang rape.
Backlash from a feature story in Rolling Stone prompted university President Teresa A. Sullivan to suspend all fraternity activities Saturday through Jan. 9, the start of the spring semester. But that didn't stop activists from organizing outside of the Phi Kappa Psi house, where WVIR reported police used force to arrest at least three people.

The roughly 200-person crowd called for changes to end rape culture. Protesters held up signs with messages like "She trusted you to do the right thing" and "UVA STOP RAPE" as they chanted "Not one more."
