Store Operations Board Responds to Campaign Opposing Big Business on Campus

Our e-mail campaign, in conjunction with the discussion opened up by Senator Oatfield's bill and its accompanying petition, have worked so far!

While before the Panda Express plan seemed to be inevitable, and some at the Auxiliary had tried to characterize opposition to it as irresponsible or, even worse at Berkeley, "radical," more in-touch student representatives on the Store Operations Board have organized a Community Forum on the issue, recognizing the need for an open community dialogue before plans continue to be pursued.

The Community Forum will take place on Wednesday evening. We will post updates regarding the discussion afterwards.
