For everyone who doesn't already know about this, today is the third day of 6party. This consists of McGill students going into the James administration building, setting up on the 6th floor and staying there completely peacefully trying to get the McGill administration to recognize the results of the SSMU referenda on CKUT and QPIRG (student institutions, look it up, no time to explain).
What has happened so far:
-Wifi shut off in James Administration Building
-Bathrooms locked so no one can use the toilet
-6party gained access to a window through which food was being hoisted up using a rope and bucket (food was brought willingly by outside students and people supporting the cause)
-McGill security cut the rope and is not allowing anyone to bring food to 6party, they basically cannot get anything to eat
-6party was using a bucket as a toilet since McGill locked the toilets in an effort to force them out. Security has confiscated this bucket forcing people to relieve themselves on the ground.

THIS IS FUCKING UNACCEPTABLE! Everyone should know about this outrage going on at what is supposed to be a place of learning and one of our country's top universities. Let people know about this disgusting abuse of power by the McGill security and administration, this must be stopped, I am absolutely beside myself with anger. If you care about people's rights and freedoms, YOU SHOULD BE TOO.
