Update: Jennifer Fleck has an excellent story on today’s protest in the Daily Emerald. There will be another one tomorrow at 12, in Johnson Hall.
Details to be posted on the UO-CESV website here. Show up and let Gottfredson know how you feel about the assault and his cover-up.
Update: There was a large crowd. 400? We listened to some brief speeches, then marched into Johnson Hall, filling the lobby and steps inside and out the front. A few admins came out and gave the usual non-responses, including re-iterating the FERPA lie. They got nervous and left when they realized people aren’t fooled by that anymore, and that the questions weren’t going away. We stayed in the lobby and chanted for about 30 minutes. Things like “Survivors over sports!” and “What did Gottfredson know?” and “We want answers”. Jennifer Freyd got Provost Scott Coltrane to come out and try again, but he still wouldn’t say anything substantive – probably waiting for his talking points from the new crisis management consultants. Rumor has it Robin Holmes wants to go with RBI strategies again. OK, that’s a joke.
Gottfredson was last seen heading north on I-5, though he did meet with the faculty coalition in the AM, and he’ll be back tonight for a dinner at the Longhouse.
The CESV plan is to go back to JH again tomorrow at noon, and give the administration another chance to explain their cover-up. The lobby has some nice chairs and UO’s best wifi. The perfect place to stake out and do some homework, while you wait to buttonhole your president.
