Lafayette, Indiana, USA
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.
THE PURDUE ALLIANCE OF LIBERTARIAN SOCIALISTS NEEDS THE HELP OF OUR COMRADES THROUGHOUT THE COUNTRY AND THE WORLD!
