Activists Take to the Streets

In Springfield on February 5 there was a rally to protest the U.S. senate's acquittal of Trump. The rally was outside city hall. “We had about 50 people, which was great considering we just posted the event less than 48 hours before,” organizer Jackie Neiman told the Valley Post.

The organizers wrote, “Eighty-eight percent of the student body has voted to end MHC's investment in fossil fuels. In response, the board of trustees refused to divest. Join us for a national day of action demanding that Mount Holyoke College divests their endowment from fossil fuels. Come to hear speakers, and to put pressure on the board before their upcoming meeting on campus."
