Divest UMass: 15 Student Arrests and Continued Demonstration

UMass Fossil Fuel Divestment Campaign

AMHERST, MA - Yesterday, after 5 hours of negotiations with administration, the demands of the UMass Fossil Fuel Divestment Campaign were not met. At 8:00 pm, 15 students were arrested. This comes as students completed the second day of an escalatory sit-in to demand that UMass President Martin Meehan and Board of Trustees Chairman Victor Woolridge publicly commit to full fossil fuel divestment.
