Members of the Washington University Graduate Workers Union and Fossil Free WashU held protests at Brookings Hall and Anheuser-Busch Hall Saturday.
This past Saturday, we, the Wash. U. Graduate Workers Union (WUGWU), took action with Fossil Free WashU at ThurtenE Carnival to demand that Washington University stop its exploitation of graduate workers, St. Louis and the planet.
Fossil Free WashU recently visited a community in southern Illinois to see the direct effects that fossil fuel extraction has had there.
Members of Fossil Free WashU rallied to protest against Washington University’s decision to not divest from fossil fuel companies, asking the administration to reconsider their policy March 30.
We are alumni who all worked against fossil fuel interests at Wash. U., and we support the work of Fossil Free WashU to divest our endowment from fossil fuels.
