Concerned students of Uconn
Wednesday, March 4, 2009
4:00am - 6:00pm
Student Union Ballroom 330
Over Christmas break, Uconn police intercepted an email threatening the safety of Uconn sophomore Andrew Gordon. They felt the threat was credible enough to immediately alert the local police. Though both have let Andrew know his safety is in danger while he is on the UConn campus, neither will grant him permission to view this threat. Nor have any steps been implemented to keep Andy from being harmed by this people. If the police would let him view the email, he may be able to identify who is threatening him, and encouraging others to harm him.
Next time,you may be the one who is repeatedly threatened with being attacked on campus while the police and university look the other way, thinking that telling you "hey you're in significant danger of getting beaten into a coma" is adaquate measure to keep you safe.
Show up on March 4 to show the university, and Andy, that you won't settle for ignoring the safety of UConn students. Bring snacks and the like to share. Once the crowd gathers, we'll order pizza. Carrying signs is a definate plus. Have afternoon class? Let your professors know, you are taking time off from class because you care about the safey of every student on campus, even if the university doesn't.
