COLUMBUS (WCMH) — A group of graduate students at the Ohio State University are protesting the return to campus amid the COVID-19 pandemic, among other concerns.
According to the Graduate Student Labor Coalition, a car caravan protest will circle the OSU Columbus campus, beginning from Bricker Hall on Annie and John Glenn Avenue, starting at 1p.m, Tuesday, and will be followed by a socially-distanced rally at and around Bricker Hall.
According to the coalition, graduate students will be protesting the dismissal of their concerns about the return to campus during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The group will also be demanding:
- The right to opt-out of all in-person activities during the pandemic.
- The reinstatement of cost of living adjustments for graduate students.
- A meeting with administrators to discuss the demands in the GSLC’s June 16th open letter, as well as additional demands around anti-racism.
