On Tuesday evening, the Stanford administration sent a missive to the Fossil Free encampment, proclaiming that "unscheduled events and other unsanctioned gatherings" were a violation of University policy and the Fundamental Standard, and warned of "potential consequences" if the students did not de-camp immediately to White Plaza.
Fossil Free Stanford's (somewhat cheeky, yet deadly serious) response was posted 24 hours later:
1) We're not moving
2) You're in violation of the University's Fundamental Standard
Fossil Free Stanford declared: "By choosing to continue to invest in the fossil fuel industry, thereby fueling climate destruction and environmental injustice, you are in violation of the Fundamental Standard. As a member of the Stanford Board of Trustees, you are expected to uphold our University's values and listen to the overwhelming consensus of the Stanford community."

Security guards took shifts in front of the University president's office, where the Official Notice From Fossil Free Stanford was posted on the door.
