This afternoon, 125+ students marched from Proctor Terrace to Old Chapel to demonstrate support for the growing campus- and nation-wide student divestment movement. Passing students stopped to take pictures (#instagram!) as the enthusiastic, chanting parade wound its way down Mead Chapel Hill. The group gathered in front of Old Chapel, where anyone from the crowd who wanted to speak was handed the megaphone and given a chance to do so.

The march served as a follow-up to last month’s “Wake-Up Assembly,” when a group of seven student representatives met with the Board of Trustees and asked them to announce by March 15th a commitment to divestment and a freeze on all future unethical investments.
