6-22-6 - UPDATE: 

The Hunger Strike is over - Miami administrators have agreed to bargain with the union!

ORIGINAL ALERT:

Students at the University of Miami are hunger striking to demand that Miami President, and former Clinton cabinet member Donna Shalala honor the right of campus janitors to form a union. This hunger strike is ongoing and follows on the heels of a two-week hunger strike by janitors at the university. They need your support.

It's been a month of student and student labor sit-ins, ranging from Virginia to the Florida State Capitol to Berkeley. Students have also won a series of victories in their struggle to create a national anti-sweatshop Designated Supplier Program. And students have joined together with faculty, staff, and community members in a series of Tent State Universities (read below).

What you can do: 

Across the US, students have taken the initiative. You can make a difference by supporting the Miami students on hunger strike:

Send a letter to Shalala.
