Student Divestment Sit-In Continues Through Final Exams
Students are currently on Day 55--more than 2^10 hours for the geeks among us--of the sit-in outside President Reif’s office, calling for MIT to immediately divest from coal and tar sands, to establish an Ethics Advisory Committee, and to commit to campus carbon neutrality by 2040. Members of MITACAL have shown our solidarity by joining the students periodically. You can add your support by making a donation to help them stay healthy with food and study supplies during finals week. Learn more at MITsitin.org.
