Protesters to hit District

Protesters will bring a long list of grievances with the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund with them when they descend on the city this weekend. The demonstrations, which have been held at meetings of the international lending organizations since 1999, are an amalgamation of different causes under the catchall slogan “global justice.” Issues […]

GW preps for demonstrations

University officials said they are “pretty comfortable” that students will be safe during this weekend’s World Bank and International Monetary Fund protests. GW added 44 security officers in residence halls, academic and administrative facilities, but students should exercise caution and keep themselves out of potentially dangerous situations to ensure safety, officials said. GW hired security […]

Op-Ed: Walls do not define debate

People often look at my former high school, the School Without Walls, and point out the things that it does not have. It does not have a gymnasium. There is no cafeteria. Some unfamiliar with the school even believe the building lacks physical walls. The debate over what to do with the aging facility is […]

Letter: Eat something else

Jimmy Eat World. Let us take a moment to carefully ponder what that means. To be able to eat the world you have to be larger than the world, meaning that this band is larger than life as we know it … ha! I saw a quote in the article (“Mellow crowd marks Superfest,” Sept. […]

Letter: Senseless violence

The Hatchet editorial (“Look out your windows,” Sept. 23, p. 4) suggests that students gaze adoringly at the IMF/World Bank protesters and “educate themselves.” Dissent and protest are necessary ingredients in democracy. But as an SMPA major who pays an additional thousand dollars for our magnificent new building, that we should have to fortify it […]

Staff editorial: Save D.C. nightlife

D.C. Councilmember Jack Evans recently proposed legislation that would ban businesses zoned as restaurants from turning into clubs at night – an oversimplified response to a complex problem. Evans’ plan prevents clubs from charging cover fees or installing dance floors larger than 100 square feet, keeping establishments like Paper Moon in Georgetown from disguising a […]

Music department ups security

The music department increased security measures in the basement of the Academic Center this year after a rash of instrument thefts last spring totaled more than $20,000 in losses. Facilities Management moved the lockers that used to the hallways of the department into room B-112 this year. Students access the room by swiping GWorld cards […]
