UBC STUDENTS HAVE OCCUPIED THE OFFICE OF UBC PRESIDENT, DAVID STRANGWAY

At approximately 8 am on Thursday March 20th, 35 UBC students occupied President Strangway's office to protest ancillary fees, the 300% increase in tuition fees for international graduate students, and the general lack of democracy at UBC.

There remain over 15 students staying overnight.

Today (Friday March 21st) at 12:30 pm there will be a rally outside the Old Administrative Building (next to Koerner Library) to give support to the occupants in their struggle against the UBC administration. PLEASE MAKE THE TIME TO COME - THIS IS YOUR CHANCE TO BE HEARD!!!

We will hand out ribbons at the rally to tie to tree branches (in front of the Old Administrative Building) in support of the occupants.

If you wish to join the protest email list, please send an email to "majordom@snopc2.physics.ubc.ca" with the message "subscribe protest" in the body of the message (not the subject heading).
