This is, of course, the key event in the evolutionary proccess we're seeing in the deaf community.
The protesters are all about the old deaf guards who dont believe in the re-intergration of deaf people back into the hearing society.
The deaf communities are facing major evolutionary changes in the future which enable them to mainstream and re-integrate back into the hearing society. They are Cochlear Implants and recently stem cells which have been proven to be part of the final solutions to addressing deafness. The medical marvels have enabled deaf people to function almost like hearing people. This has created a new deaf society in the past decade and this new deaf society has been slowly taking over Gallaudet University operations.
The protests youre seeing is the old deaf guard's last stand against the changes in the future of deaf society, against the new deaf society taking over Gallaudet.
Jane's leadership has the support of the new deaf society and is best one to lead the new deaf society which already counts for 80 percent of the students at Gallaudet into the future.
The protesters are about the past, about the old deaf guards who have become scourge of the deaf communities. They have to give it up because they cant beat the evolutionary proccess the deaf society is facing.
