Hunger Strike

It's all over folks, but the struggle continues. Specifically, students have organized a day of silence on Monday to demonstrate how Columbia has silenced and ignored both students and residents in its plans to expand into West Harlem. The action starts on Monday at 11 am on the steps of Low. Check out the flyer.

In the next issue of el participante we hope to collect several takes on the strike reflecting the strengths, weaknesses, achievements, and failures of what has been one of the most remarkable student movements in Columbia's recent history. If you have an idea that you'd like to see published in next month's el participante, email us at

The hunger strike has ended, but the actions leave a lasting impression on this administration. We should be proud to have upheld the tradition of organized student dissent on this campus.
