Upton residents attending UMass Amherst have taken a seat for the environment.
Molly Craft, Molly King, Peter Davey, Ian Murphy, and Kyle Gazoorian of Upton are involved in the Divest UMass Movement which demands divestment of UMass investments from the top 200 publically traded fossil fuel companies.
Molly Craft, Molly King, Peter Davey, and Ian Murphy participated in a peaceful sit in along with hundreds of other students at the University.
“We’ve garnered a lot of support; 350 students and faculty came out to the rally outside of the Whitmore Administrative Building last week,” said Craft. “The Divestment campaign is happening all over the country, at public universities nationwide,” she said.
