They were both paying their respects to Kentucky Pride, as a bystander described. But a funeral on campus? Kentucky Pride?
The UK United Students Against Sweatshops protested Monday against the outsource of UK Dining Services with a procession around campus followed by a funeral.
The event titled “Funeral For Kentucky Pride and Kentucky Promise” was a remembrance of a time before outsourcing UK Dining Services was an option, according to the group’s website.
Members of the organization passed out flyers and explained to students who walked by that they are concerned with the number of jobs that would be lost and how the outsourcing would affect local farmers.
