The Occupy Berkeley General Assembly endorses and supports the actions of Occupy Cal, a movement of UC students formed to raise awareness of the continual privatization of public education, in particular an 81% free hike that has been proposed by U.C. President Mark Yudof. Tomorrow, November 9th, Occupy Cal will conduct a day of action followed by an encampment on the Berkeley campus to protest these austerity cuts that students face in lieu of forcing the 1% to pay their fair share. Please consider coming out and making a show of solidarity with our Occupy Cal brothers and sisters!
11/10 Update: For those who have come here looking more information regarding Occupy Cal and the actions of 11/9 that have recently gathered media attention, their website is actually here. While a large number of Occupy Berkeley members participated in solidarity with yesterday’s actions, the actions took place in the name of the Occupy Cal General Assembly rather than that of Occupy Berkeley.
