On Sunday April 12, BC Admitted Eagle Day, approximately 150 students, faculty, and community members from across New England converged onto the BC campus in protest of the suppression of free speech at Boston College. BC students, some already on disciplinary probation and worried of further repercussions, gathered for lunch together in Ignacio to distance themselves from the protest. The protest was a resounding success, followed that evening by a unanimous approval of the student group Climate Justice @ Boston College by the Undergraduate Student Government at Boston College (UGBC). Below are select photos, videos, and articles about the event.
Five articles in the student newspaper, The Heights, covered the events:
(1) ‘We don’t even go here’,
(2) UGBC Vote Positions CJBC One Step From University Recognition,
(3) LTE: Letter From Climate Justice At Boston College,
(4) LTE: Letter From Former UGBC Vice President Chris Marchese,
