New lease signed for Che Café, Groundwork Books, Food Co-op and General Store Co-op

On July 28, 2017 the UCSD administration signed the successor lease for the Che Café, Groundwork Books, Food Co-op, and General Store Co-op! The co-ops had all signed it during the prior week or so.

This ends the long fight of the Che Café Collective and supporters to reverse the June 13, 2014 termination of their lease and to defeat the administration’s lawsuit to evict the Che. It also ends the Boycott of Alumni Donations to UCSD. The boycott was initiated by the Che Café Support Network in 2015.

Here is some early press on the news:
