On Wednesday, May 21st, Olympia SDS began a heroic nonviolent occupation of the office of the President of Evergreen State College, to demand the re-instatement of their SDS chapter as a recognized student organization. The sit-in continues into its sixth day and Olympia SDS is not backing down.
Operating under its concept of dual power, Olympia SDSers decided to use the space they are occupying to create alternative and liberatory education and public space. On Memorial Day, Olympia SDS is calling for the first day of classes to start at the “People’s University”.
Supporters outside of the area are encouraged to call Wendy Freeman, who will make the final decision about the status of SDS next week, to tell her you support SDS and demand the group be reinstated.
