Yale is hosting a student body hunger strike with the help of the Labor unions in an attempt to promote the idea of collective bargaining, and the Yale Republican students have just destroyed them. The Liberal Snowflakes involved are not even doing their hunger strike properly. In a message sent out to fellow students, they asked that if the protestors became hungry, that someone could take their place so they could go and eat.
So not so much a hunger strike protest, more a delayed lunchtime protest. And college Republicans thought why not have some fun.
They set up a BBQ right next to where the students were having their very visible (but not very real) protest.
According to the Daily Caller:
“I’m not really focused on that,” Aaron Greenberg, Local 33 chairman and political science graduate student teacher told the New Haven Register. “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.”
The union chapter said it wants the hunger strike to be a source of joy, and invited others to join in when one of their members got too hungry.
“Instead of eating your lunch, sit with us and lift our spirits,” reads a flier Local 33 distributed on campus earlier this week. “When one of us cannot continue, come take our place.”
