The Hoot’s article on the protest


The Hoot has a front page article on our demonstration yesterday in Olin-Sang.

Go and read it:

By the way, I’m the one in the hat, in case you couldn’t tell.

I think the article is a pretty fair summary of what happened. And I’m very happy with the responses of the faculty to our concerns, even though not many stayed afterwards (they’re busy, so that’s understandable, though disappointing). Overall the faculty seem amenable to including students in the decisionmaking process, and it’s the actions of the administration that we need to be concerned about.

The protest was very, very valuable, though. I think we accomplished a great deal, though there will need to be much more of this kind of thing in the future (and a greater united student force).
