No More Nukes in Our Name!
On Wednesday, May 9, 14 students at UC Santa Cruz, and a total of 41 students and alumni across the UC system, embarked on a hunger strike in protest of the University of California's involvement in the research and design of nuclear weapons. The huger strikers are demanding that the UC Regents pass a resolution to severe ties with Los Alamos and Lawrence Livermore National Laboratories, which are managed by a limited liability corporation comprised of the UC, Bechtel National, and other private companies.
The hunger strikes will bring their demands to the UC Regents meeting at UC San Francisco on May 17.
