(en) US, Purdue, Lafayette, Indiana, ANARCHIST STUDENTS ON HUNGER STRIKE

Date Mon, 20 Nov 2006 21:48:12 +0200


Anarchist students of the Purdue Alliance of Libertarian Socialists, in
solidarity with the Purdue Organization of Labor Equality and the oppressed
workers of the world, are currently engaged in a hunger strike and camp-in, the
purpose of which is to pressure Purdue University to stop having its apparel
maunfactured in sweatshops. The hunger strike, which began on Friday, 17
November, will continue until Purdue unequivocally accepts the Designated
Suppliers Program and other anti-sweatshop measures. Students have also been
occupying various campus buildings 24 hours a day despite intense police
harrassment. The occupation will continue throughout the Thanksgiving holiday.
Students at Purdue have been struggling for 7 years now to make Purdue a
sweat-free campus. This campaign is our "piece de resistance." We will not stop
our strike until our demands are met.
