OCCUPY CAL VOTES FOR NOVEMBER 15th SYSTEM-WIDE EDUCATION STRIKE!Posted on Sub
They beat us…
But we just grew stronger.
OCCUPY CALL VOTES FOR NOVEMBER 15th SYSTEM-WIDE EDUCATION STRIKE! After a mass rally and march of over 3,000 people, and repeated police assaults on the encampment, the Occupy Cal general assembly decided — with over 500 votes, 95% of the assembly — to organize and call for a strike and day of action on Tuesday, November 15 in all sectors of higher education. We will strike in opposition to the cuts to public education, university privatization, and the indebting of our generation.
We also call for simultaneous solidarity actions in workplaces and K-12 schools. We will organize through daily, 5pm strike planning meetings at our encampments, followed by general assemblies.
Folks at UC Berkeley and surrounding area: come to the nightly strike meetings at 5pm on Sproul and General Assemblies at 6pm.
Folks at other schools: organize your own spaces, general assemblies, etc. and strike, occupy, take over your campuses!
