Protestors are refusing to leave a South Side field house even though the gas has been cut off.

A handful of parents has been staging a sit-in at the Whittier Elementary School field house for nearly three weeks. They want the district to convert the building into a library.

But CPS officials say the structure is unsound. They have asked parents to vacate the premises and work with the district on a solution.
