Solidarity

    1. Petition by

      Nadav Slovin

      Worcester, MA

We, the undersigned, stand in support of the courageous actions of students and faculty members who have peacefully stood strong in the face of physical intimidation and beatings on University campuses and city streets. You have been beaten, pepper sprayed, tear gassed, dragged, arrested and even killed, yet you refuse to submit. We admire you. We are inspired by your fearless commitment to peace and a more equal and just world. We understand that your actions speak to deep injustices within our system that go beyond your local community - they are inequities that we must confront, as well, inequities that people are subjected to daily throughout the world.

We petition students and faculty alike to stand up and take action in your Universities. Stand up now to demand real change in the undemocratic and corrupt institutions that govern our Universities and our societies alike.

Our struggle will be long and we will face many obstacles from administrators, security and police forces, and a society reluctant to change. But wherever we stand, whatever language we speak, we struggle as one, knowing that our sisters and brothers stand behind us every step of the way. We love you dearly, fellow humans, fellow lovers of equality and social justice, and look forward to continuing to share peacefully with you in a movement for a better world.

In solidarity,

      Because Education is a Right, and I have mad respect for all those people who put themselves on the line to defend that right. The only way that we are going to uphold the public services that we have now is by fighting for them.

      There IS the potential for universities to be true representatives of the amazing people who make it up. Students need to take pride and ownership in their universities!

      Societies need places where individuals may safely dissent. If not universities, then where?
