Hunger Strike Continues, According To New Press Release

In a press release posted to their blog at midnight last night, Hunger for Justice states that "the hunger strikers will not eat until the administration ensures them that all 13 employees whose jobs are in danger will be gainfully employed in 2010."

Further, despite administration's response that they will not cancel the layoffs, the strikers feel that "progress is being made."

Royce Drake '10, one of the strikers, gave an interview to WVKR, which can be heard here.

The hunger strike is currently in its fourth day.

Update 5:03pm: The hunger strike has officially ended, seventeen hours after the press release was put out. See the above post or click here for details.
