On Friday, April 20, Swarthmore Mountain Justice delivered a gift basket to the office of President Rebecca Chopp. Since the President was unable to attend the fossil fuel divestment panel discussion the week before, the group treated her to a movies, inviting her to view the video recording of the event. The basket included a DVD with a link to the panel along with a bag of popcorn, a necessary movie night accessory.
The basket also included a personal letter from Mountain Justice in response to the President’s Op-ed published the day before. Mountain Justice expressed disappointment in the President’s statement and urged her to consider the group’s research, which shows how divestment from the ‘Sordid Sixteen,’ the worst-of-the-worst fossil fuel companies, will not compromise the College’s financial integrity. A similar letter was released publicly by Mountain Justice and can be read here.
