We are a free speech movement, occupying a free speech zone, establishing an open university, and practicing direct democracy, all on our own initiative. We need no permission.
"This will happen with or without you. Are you with us?" we told the Washington University in St Louis administration in 2003. Put that way, how could they say no? Entirely upon our own initiative, as a courtesy between equals, we adopted their name as our own, establishing a horizontalst, not a hierarchical relationship of mutual respect.

Please help us collect as many signatures as possible from students, faculty, parents, and alumni at Washington University in St. Louis by our next Student-Worker Alliance General Body Meeting, Thursday October 25, for presentation to the Provost. The University has hired the highest priced union busting lawyer in the country and we think their strategy is to bargain in bad faith until the end of the 2015-2016 academic year, in the hope that without an acceptable contract our St. Louis Adjunct Action union will fall apart and be decertified. Then they can pick us off one by one.
