Elevator Occupation Favorite 



Apr 19 2016


New York City

"Eighteen members of NYU Divest concluded a two-day demonstration in Bobst Library on Tuesday evening, after NYU administrators threatened to suspend participating students."

"Divest, a student activist group focused on ending NYU’s investment in fossil fuels, had spend 33 hours occupying Bobst Library’s executive elevator—the only elevator that is capable of accessing the university’s administrative offices, located on the library’s 11th and 12th floors."

"Divest members began their occupation of the executive elevator Monday at 8 AM, saying they would continue to do so until NYU’s Board of Trustees scheduled a vote on fossil fuel divestment and scheduled a date at which Divest members could present to the Board regarding the issue."
