Protests at CSU and Across the Country

Updated Below:

On Wednesday, thousands of people protested across the CSU system in opposition to the cuts that have been imposed, and the cuts that are threatened, to California higher education.  Students occupied administration buildings at nearly half of the CSU campuses and organizers report that nearly 12,000 students, faculty, staff, and supporters took part in a wider events across the CSU system.  The protests were organized by the California Faculty Association.  Reports of individual campus protests can be found here, here, and here.

As always, Angus Johnson's blog Student Activism contains links and commentary.

Not surprisingly, Protests were also held across the country at Portland State, Rutgers, and UMASS, Boston. 

April 13 marked the kick-off day for a period of protest across the nation.  We will keep you posted.  

Update: Protests Continue at Sacramento and Fullerton

The protests mean: "students don't want to pay for their education and faculty don't accept that there's no money." The general public response is: "Too bad, boo hoo."

The protests are in essence *in support of the administrators*, confirming the same failing rhetoric of privilege and inaction that administrators have used for 20 years. All it gets you is more cuts.
