Free the Penn State 31!

On April 15, thirty-one Penn State students sat in Old Main to demand that President Graham Spanier adopt the Designated Suppliers Program, which would ensure that the workers who make Penn State apparel are paid a living wage and afforded the right to a union. They were arrested for this act of nonviolent civil disobedience. Support the student activists and the workers who make Penn State apparel. Add your name to the following petition, which will be delivered to President Spanier on April 28. ----------------------------------------------- President Spanier, Please drop the charges and take no academic disciplinary action against the thirty-one students who sat in Old Main on April 15, 2008, in support of the Designated Suppliers Program.
