SCSU Hunger Strike Podcast
1995 was a year filled with student activism at St. Cloud State University. There were protests and rallies held throughout the academic year—culminating in a Hunger Strike by seven students. Several of the striking students were members of MECHA -- Movimiento Estudiantil Chicano de Aztlan, the Council of African American Students and the Student Coalition on Racism.
The group had a list of demands for the university, including creating a student diversity center, hiring and retaining more faculty and staff of color, and forming a committee to consider a Chicano-studies program. KVSC radio presented a retrospective news feature on the tumultuous year.
