“A little after one in the morning, students began to congregate on the first lower level of NYU’s Elmer Bobst Library. Sleeping bags, pillows, suitcases, clothes, and signs were strewn everywhere. These students from the Incarceration to Education Coalition (IEC) were occupying Bobst to protest the use of Aramark dining services on campus.”
“The IEC’s ‘Occupy Bobst, Teach-In, Act Out’ campaign has been in the works for months , but it is being launched now in an effort to disrupt the next five-year cycle of dining services being presented to NYU in December.”
“‘We want NYU to divest from Aramark, and not choose similar dining service providers like Compass which we found was invested in immigration detention centers and international prisons,’ said Hunter Major, an IEC organizer and GLS sophomore. ‘I think it’s the responsibility of everyone to address … the prison industrial complex and our own complicity within it,’ Wong said.
“Dylan Brown, an IEC organizer and Gallatin sophomore, said that their next steps involve a possible meeting with Marc Wais, Senior Vice President for Student Affairs. ‘We’ve been occupying, he knows where to find us, and really, we’re refusing to leave Bobst, until our demands are met,’ Brown said.”
Oprah :||: "And how do you know when you're doing something right? How do you know that? It feels so. What I know now is that feelings are really your GPS system for life. When you're supposed to do something or not supposed to do something, your emotional guidance system lets you know.”
