Today was the National Campus Day of Action for disclosure by Farallon Capital Management. Here at Yale that meant a satirical protest by Yale Student Shareholders for Aggressive Management of the Endowment (Yale SHAME), chanting "Profits over People!" and calling on Yale to invest in privatizing and selling off Yale's resources in the manner that its clients have exploited natural resources around the globe. We then took matters into our own hands by marking trees on cross-campus to be felled and setting up equiptment to drain and sell the water from the Women's Table. Pictures and quotes are on-line here.
