At approximately 10pm on Feb 18th, students of Take Back NYU! took over the Kimmel Marketplace. They blockaded the doors, declared an occupation, and presented demands to the NYU administration.
Included in their list of demands are calls for deep transparency of university policies, fair labor practices toward all NYU employees, donation of supplies and materials to rebuild the University of Gaza, tuition stabilization for all students, and more. The students have also declared solidarity with the student movements in Greece, Italy, and the UK, with the people of Palestine, and with all other student "sleepovers" yet to come "in the name of democracy and student power."
The occupation can be followed at the Take Back NYU Twitter profile.Tweet
