Systematically Oppressed Ivy League Students at Dartmouth Demand End To Ableism and Other Stuff I've Never Heard Of

Dartmouth student's statement:

Our sit-in is our response; our physical, vigorous, and positive action. The burden should not lie with systematically oppressed students (affected by racism, classism, imperialism, nativism, sexism, heterosexism, cis-sexism, and ableism) to ensure our own well-being, safety, and continued existence at Dartmouth College: yet our lived experiences at Dartmouth have been so violent that we were driven to write a plan for such assurance -- The Freedom Budget. The least the College must do is seriously address the points that our communities found most essential to our health and indeed our survival.

Our bodies are already on the line, in danger, and under attack at Dartmouth. We are now using them to occupy the President's office until he accords us the basic respect of serious, point-by-point, actionable response.

No justice, no peace.
