|Well, it's either kitty litter or diapers, we suppose.|
A report from Macalester's student newspaper indicates that it's not all fun and games for protesters taking part in an anti-Wells Fargo sit-in at Weyerhaeuser Hall.

According to the Mac Weekly, students were originally sitting-in in a particular wing of Weyerhaeuser, and some walked to another part of the building to use the bathroom. But after security guards barred those students from rejoining the sit-in, protesters resorted to relieving themselves in a kitty-litter box.
From the Weekly:
One of the students involved in the sit-in, Jenny Hunken '16, left the group to use the bathroom and then was not let back into the office hallway.It appears the sacrifices students participating in the sit-in have made over the past three days might not be for naught. This morning, the Twitter account representing the protesters reported that "After two days of sitting in and a student blockade, the Macalester administrators have agreed to talk about cutting the contract [with Wells Fargo] again!
"I went in with the students this morning," she said. "We occupied the lobby area where [Rosenberg's] secretary is. We chanted for about an hour. Someone went to the bathroom and she was let back in, so I decided to go as well but when I came back up I was told I could not be let in."
Other students used a kitty litter box to urinate after Hunken was not allowed back into the hallway.
