MORNINGSIDE HEIGHTS (WABC) -- A campus group at Columbia University staged a protest Sunday night around 8 p.m.

The protest, organized by the "No Red Tape" campus group projected messages such as "Rape Happens Here" and "Columbia Protects Rapists" on the facade of Low, and also had members holding large signs.

The organization said they are planning a National Day of Action on Monday, and Sunday's protests were a preview of a bigger event.

Eyewitness News reached out to Columbia University for a comment, but has not heard back yet.
