Northeastern students’ protest blocks Chick-fil-A

Northeastern University said yesterday that a Chick-fil-A fast-food restaurant will not be coming to campus, after the college’s student government denounced the chain amid reports that it supports groups opposed to gay and lesbian rights.

In a move applauded by the university, the student Senate on Monday night passed a resolution, 31 to 5 with eight abstentions, against allowing the Atlanta-based chain to open in Northeastern’s student center following renovations there.
