Almost 200 Students Take Over Saigon Grill!

Students from Columbia, New School, NYU, Hunter, John Jay, BMCC and Sarah Lawrence staged a sit-in protest yesterday at Saigon Grill!

Anthony Hang from Hunter College describes the experience: "When the students had to leave the restaurant, I saw them all walking out. It was large and impressive watching this. There was so much power that I almost cried seeing this unity among people, among workers. I stood there in awe, chanting, "Boycott Saigon Grill!" and the students chanted with us.

They merged with our picket line one by one. All the students and workers stood beside each other and the chants were so loud that people stopped to find out what was going on. It was a great sight to see."

Video clip from the sit-in coming soon.
