What: A strategy and informational session on how to organize around the issue of increasing corporate control of the university. (The participation in this event is free, a 5 dollar donation for the food will be much appreciated).
The discussion will focus on the history of the Novartis alliance with the College of Natural Resources at UC Berkeley and the tenure case of Ignacio Chapela. * Dr. Chapela?s tenure was denied, despite a unanimous recommendation from his department, after he published an article in Nature in November 2001 observing the contamination of native corn in Mexico by material from illegally-planted genetically modified corn.
Students will also talk about their experience organizing Students for Responsible Research (SRR), a group formed to publicize and resist Novartis? alliance with the college.
Don?t miss it! Join the session and have lunch with students, professors and other interested people involved in the struggle to have a public university system free of corporate control.
If you want to be involved in organizing for the tenure case, this event, and its follow-up please write to firstname.lastname@example.org.
