On Thursday, we met with administrators and started the process toward getting our demands met. Today is the last day of the week, so WE NEED AS MANY FOLKS OUT THERE AS POSSIBLE, FROM AS MANY COMMUNITIES AS POSSIBLE. We also need support on Monday. The hunger strikers are going to need support today to keep their spirits up through the weekend. Friday marks the fifth day they go without food, and Monday is when the chancellor gets back to Berkeley.
Here is what it looks like for today:
Noon: Rally with UPTE and AFSCME
2pm: Organizing meeting for folks who want to get involved
3:30pm: WE NEED YOU THERE in case we are in negotiations with the admin again.
