UW Kick Out Sodexo Coalition

There are two types of protests: ones that work and ones that don't. So far, the college-organized group UW Kick Out Sodexo Coalition, which has staged three on-campus sit-ins, has worked in that it's resulted in 38 student arrests for peacefully protesting inside UW interim president Phyllis Wise's office—but it hasn't yet ousted alleged human-rights-violating food vendors Sodexo. Despite the administration's choice not to cancel their contract, students have chanted "We're not going away." Michael Young, incoming president, should expect a warm greeting from the group come fall. COLIN GORENSTEIN
