Open Letter on U Oregon strike

The University of Oregon is using some extremely disturbing tactics for dealing with its strike by Graduate Teaching Fellows, including a threat of deportation. There’s an open letter protesting this by philosopher Mark Alfano, which you can sign here. Readers of this blog might be especially interested to note that a key issue in the strike is the university’s unwillingness to grant GTFs a measly TWO WEEKS leave for childbirth or illness.
