4. AF­TER THE OC­CU­PA­TION

The McGill Daily - - Commentary -

Dis­ci­plinary ac­tions and in­tim­i­da­tion.

• Di­vest Mcgill did not suf­fer any re­tal­i­a­tion from the ad­min­is­tra­tion. This wasn’t the case for the 6Party oc­cu­pants; ac­tions were taken by the ad­min­is­tra­tion against some mem­bers, dis­miss­ing a floor fel­low partly for his par­tic­i­pa­tion in the oc­cu­pa­tion, and the mem­ber in­ter­viewed al­leged that she and other mem­bers were fol­lowed by Mcgill se­cu­rity agents af­ter the oc­cu­pa­tion, and that she was in­tim­i­dated by the head of se­cu­rity who ap­proached her to say that he had her name and pic­ture on file.

Think about af­ter care.

• Both the 6Party and Di­vest Mcgill peo­ple in­ter­viewed said that the time af­ter the oc­cu­pa­tion was also dif­fi­cult: peo­ple fell sick and felt phys­i­cally and emo­tion­ally ex­hausted. One in­ter­vie­wee sug­gested that oth­ers pro­vide the oc­cu­pants with emo­tional and phys­i­cal sup­port for a few days or weeks af­ter the oc­cu­pa­tion.
