Student or Learner
Would you be kind enough to tell me the proper interpretation of the phrase “staged a sit-down” in the following sentence that is a little ambiguous for my me?
About a dozen Civil Rights demonstrators staged a sit-down in one of the main corridors of a governmental office today.
I know the meaning of the term “sit-down strike”:
sit-down strike = a strike in which workers refuse to leave the workplace until a settlement is reached
In my opinion, the demonstrators in the present case aren’t generally speaking workers or government officials.
Thank you for your efforts.
