Columbia University students led a demonstration last Friday in support of Emma Sulkowicz, a Columbia senior who pledges to carry a mattress around campus until her alleged rapist is no longer permitted to be a student at the school. The protest, which condemned Columbia’s handling of sexual violence on campus, saw roughly 50 other survivors of sexual violence speak out — several for the first time. 

A coalition of student groups also delivered a letter to Columbia administration proposing reforms that will improve the university’s response to sexual assault on campus. Their demands include ongoing programming on consent education and a release of the data on how students convicted of sexual violence on campus were punished.

This Changes Everything: Capitalism Vs the Climate | Films for Action

The video for Naomi Klein’s new book captures the truth that must be told: “Our economic model is waging a war against all life on Earth.”

Forget everything you think you know about global warming. The really inconvenient truth is that it’s not about carbon — it’s about capitalism. The convenient truth is that we can seize this existential crisis to transform our failed economic system and build something radically better.

In her most provocative book yet, Naomi Klein, author of the global bestsellers The Shock Doctrine and No Logo, tackles the most profound threat humanity has ever faced: the war our economic model is waging against life on earth.

booooost!

Okay, so, does everyone remember how abusers will often report their victims missing when they try to leave? Does everyone remember how teenagers are considered the legal property of their parents, and the vast majority of runaways leave due to physical and sexual abuse at home? Does everyone remember how disabled women and girls are vastly more likely to be abused than nondisabled women, to the point of statistics over ninety percent?

Yeah. Stop spreading this post. She left of her own free will, and we have no idea what her motivation was. It’s absolutely dangerous to be a teenage girl on the streets, but it can be considerably worse at home and at the wrong type of “special needs school.”

Shit, I didn’t realise she left of her own free will! I thought she’d been kidnapped. I’ll delete the reblog. Thank you

Yeah, the article says she was last seen “sneaking out” of the school and makes no reference to anyone else being involved who might be an alleged kidnapper.

I understand what you’re saying but the point of this post was to bring about awareness. I also edited my original post to include another link mentioning that she’s been found. I’m not going to sit here and make assumptions until more facts come about.
