Ann Arbor Area Community News
The organizer of today’s student protest filibuster of the Nuclear Option at the Michigan Union, Kristin Purdy, will appear on “Renegade Solutions with Charmie Gholson” on WCBN-FM tonight at 6:00 p.m. I’ll also be joining the show from Washington D.C. by telephone to talk about what we have been doing here. WCBN is broadcast on 88.3 FM in the Ann Arbor area, and also online. The image to the left shows U-M students calling their senators to speak out against the Nuclear Option. See the whole set here.
I just spoke to Kristin, and a hardy band of filibusterers are holding their protest despite some nasty weather. They plan on continuing until 9 p.m. tonight. I will update this post with photos as soon as I receive them. The students have released the following statement:
University of Michigan students will hold a 12 hour filibuster on the steps of the Michigan Union to protest the nuclear option in solidarity with students and community members across the country. We will be standing up against the destructive nuclear option and speaking out for democracy and minority rights.
