Re-posted video and rally next week

The YouTube clip of the Channel 2 news segment has been removed, so #EmoryCuts has reposted it on Vimeo. It’s still one of the quickest ways to spark a discussion in a classroom, dorm, or anywhere else.

#EmoryCuts on WSB-TV (aired November 16th, 2012) from #EmoryCuts on Vimeo.

Looking ahead, students and instructors are planning a rally/walkout next Tuesday, December 4, at noon. Since it’ll be the last week before exams, we want to draw as large a crowd as possible and make sure the cuts do not disappear from anyone’s mind over the holidays. More information and discussion on the Facebook event page.

Admin won’t talk to press

Channel 2 Action News (ABC’s local in Atlanta) is conducting an investigative report on the cuts at Emory and their racial implications. Much gratitude to those who have been interviewed or otherwise contributed to the story.

The administration, however, is refusing to talk to the press. Presumably so that President Wagner can continue to tell trustees about our unblemished public image.

There isn’t much wiggle room, since the story will be broadcast soon, i.e., tonight or Monday. If you have any tips, you might try contacting WSB TV’s Rachel Stockman [email] [twitter] or the Channel 2 facebook page.
