Who Are Those Kids with the Orange Squares?

Last Friday, we at student Climate Culture were joined by our friends and allies in the UVM community and marched into the Board Meeting to remind them, once again, that we will NOT take their casual rejection of our proposal lying down.

Students Ian Goodnow and Julie Elfin spoke passionately, urging the Board to reconsider their decision to remain invested in dirty energy. "We're putting divestment back on the table" Julie proclaimed, and we protesters put our orange squares down on the table and filed out, singing protest songs. We convened outside in the lounge to get to know some new faces and talk to the Cynic and Free Press reporters. You can also check out the Free Press coverage here :
