Yale college republicans decided to take matters into their own hands, and though of course liberal groups have attacked them for it, decided to have a little fun with the liberal graduate students that are holding a hunger strike in the liberal university.
The college republicans club decided to host a barbecue right next to the hunger striking students. The graduate students went on strike because they formed a new, non-university approved group, and the administration has refused to negotiate with this newly formed union.
The eight protestors have not eaten for three days. So the college republican club decided to make up a meal of beef, baked beans, and corn on the cob for the local community.
Breitbart has more:
The hunger strike concerned Yale’s unwillingness to negotiate a contract with its graduate teachers, who voted to unionize in February. The union, known as Local 33, is a subgroup of the international labor union UNITE HERE.
The university’s refusal is currently being appealed to the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB), with the university reportedly hoping to hold out until Donald Trump appoints a new batch of anti-union members to the NLRB.
Asked about his reaction to the barbecue, Local 33 Chairman Aaron Greenberg told The New Haven Register, “I’m not really focused on that. I’m focused on making sure we have lots of water, make sure I’m healthy. We have a check in with our nurse this afternoon. We are focused on that.”
In fliers distributed before the strike, the organizers asked others to participate with them in solidarity, urging people to “sit with us and lift our spirits,” and “[join in] when one of us cannot continue.”
Greenberg also attacked the university for “siding with Donald Trump over members of their own community” by taking an anti-union stance.
“I think that is unacceptable. I think that is despicable. They say we have to wait, so we are waiting without eating,” he said.
