If you walk by Centennial, you’ll notice something is different. Today, our campaign chose to end its encampment given that on Tuesday we will be meeting with the Senior Leadership Team to find a way to move forward on the issue of divestment. If this meeting fails, our escalation will continue, informed by what we’ve learned these past two weeks.
Today was preview day at Northeastern- 2,500 prospective students and family members toured the university. At this event, Northeastern presented itself as a global institution. We presented Northeastern’s true global impact: lives lost, communities destroyed, voices ignored. Climate change is violent and so is Northeastern’s refusal to divest. Northeastern cannot ignore the human impact of climate change and its complicity in millions of deaths. This context will ground our meeting with the administration on Tuesday and inform our escalation moving forward.
