Demonstrations for the Indigenous and Falun Gong on College Walk
Wondering what that random music was by College Walk? There are two demonstrations coexisting between Butler and Low.
The first is a student-run demonstration called “Indigenous Peoples’ Day Die-In.” Students are rallying on college walk in order to remember the indigenous peoples forgotten due to the legacy of Columbus.
The second demonstration was on Low Steps. This one was in support of Falun Gong, a spiritual discipline founded in 1992 which combines meditation with a philosophy of the cultivation of virtue. This practice was founded in China, but the Chinese government has been heavily suppressing it since the 1990s. The intention of the demonstration today was to advocate for the human rights of this group.
