The Week contest: No empathy

This week's question: Four people were arrested after a fistfight broke out in an "empathy tent" at the University of California Berkeley, a space where left-wing activists and supporters of President Trump were supposed to find common ground. Please come up with a more appropriate name for a place where these two sides can meet to discuss their differences.
