Support the UF Hunger Strike! Support Socially Responsible Investing!

April 22, 2008

On April 9th, 2008, members of UF’s Students for a Democratic Society (http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=2217745874) shared a “last supper” (composed of Reggae Shack curry tempeh) on the steps of Tigert Hall. At least 12 people have committed to some level of participation in this hunger strike, including some that will be consuming nothing but water until our Socially Responsible Investing proposal is accepted by the University of Florida. We need your help in letting the administration know that they can no longer ignore us and our proposal.

Call Bernie Machen himself and let him know what you think about his refusal to put UF’s money where its mouth is. Ask him if the possibility that our university is profiting off of war, environmental destruction, and human rights abuses is okay with him.

Phone: (352) 392-1311
Fax: (352) 392-9506
Email: President@ufl.edu
Office of the President, 226 Tigert Hall, PO Box 113150,

Other administrators you can talk to:

Student Body President: president@sg.ufl.edu

Office of Sustainability Director Dedee DeLongpre: dedee@ufl.edu, (352) 392-1336

Ask them to publicly declare their support for the hunger strikers and their SRI proposal.

Thanks for your support!
