Harvard Students Stage Sit-In for a Living Wage!
01 May 2001
50 students took over Harvard's main administrative building on April 18, demanding a living wage of $10.25 per hour for campus service workers. The sit-in is now in its fourteenth day, and has gained the endorsement of hundreds of Harvard faculty, students, as well as Senator Ted Kennedy and AFL-CIO president John Sweeney.
Please visit our website for updates, official demands and documents, pictures, lists of endorsers, and ways you can help support this effort to gain a fair wage for the people who keep Harvard running. This is the longest sit-in in Harvard's history, and your support can help make it successful. There will be a March on Harvard on Wednesday, May 2, starting at Cambridge city hall at 4pm and arriving in Harvard Yard at 5pm. Thousands are expected to be there. There are hundreds of people camping in tents in Harvard Yard in a show of solidarity. Please come show your support for this nonviolent protest!

I agree, there needs to be more coverage. This is one of the rare situations where indy media has dropped the ball and national media has picked up the slack. There have been countless Boston Globe pieces, coverage by NPR, CBS, CNN, and now two extremely positive editorials in the New York Times by op-ed writer Bob Herbert. You ought to solicit an article from the sit-inners, or at the very least reprint some of the mainstream coverage here.
