Food Strikes at Yale
Yale students expressed their solidarity Friday night with striking workers of the Yale food services by staging a massive food-throwing riot in the huge Yale Commons.
The next day they continued their protest by bringing their lunches to Yale President Kingman Brewster's home and leaving their litter all over his lawn. Brewster discussed the issues with a few representatives but declined to address the entire crowd.
As of last night the strike was unsettled. Yale dining halls are closed, and students are receiving a $3.25 per day cash rebate to purchase outside food.
