Grad Student Union Urges STEM Boycott of U.S. Military

A graduate student union is demanding that STEM workers “refuse employment” in the military, and that 90 percent of all military spending be reallocated to “social justice” efforts.

The Graduate Employee Organization (GEO) at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign formally endorsed the STEM Strikes the War Machine campaign in a press release Friday, encouraging supporters to “take the pledge to refuse employment from all militaries and defense companies.”
