assalamou aleikoum wa rhamatoullah wa barakatouProtest at Berkeley on November 18!
Bus/Carpool from UC Davis to UC Berkeley!
|Date:||Wednesday, 18 November 2009|
|Time:||08:30 - 17:00|
|Location:||Mondavi Center to Sproul Plaza|
STUDENTS! On November 18, the Regents of the University of California are voting to raise your fees by 32% this year!
What this means:
*Thousands of students who are already facing massive loans and multiple jobs will now have to face the possibility of dropping out.
*The economic burden of the budget crisis is being unfairly placed on the shoulders of the students, rather than on those who created this crisis.
*The University of California's mission of affordable quality education is being dismantled.
In response, there will be UC-wide protests scheduled for November 18, 19 and 20. A system-wide student and teaching strike Nov 18-20 has been endorsed by several groups, including the UC Davis Solidarity Coalition.
Northern California campuses are encouraged to participate in a massive, multi-campus rally at UC Berkeley's Sproul Plaza on November 18. There will be a massive rally at NOON. Southern California will have a rally at the Regents meeting at UCLA on the 19th.
We will be transporting people from UC Davis to UC Berkeley in the morning of November 18. There will be BUSES and CARPOOLS available.
Where to meet: In front of the Mondavi Center.
When: Wednesday, November 18, 9 AM SHARP!
If you plan to attend and need a ride, please RSVP.
(No need to RSVP if you will be getting to Berkeley on your own.)
