Sun Mar 13 2011 (Updated 03/14/11) Students, Faculty, and Supporters Across California Demonstrate for Education on March 2nd
Day of Action for Public Education For the past two years, California has been in an ongoing struggle against cuts to education and public services. On March 4th, 2010, students, teachers, faculty, workers, and supporters statewide held coordinated Strike and Day of Action in defense of public education and public services. This year, California's new governor, democrat Jerry Brown, is planning to cut $1.4 Billion from public higher education, and students across the state demonstrated in coordinated actions on March 2nd and over the following days.

In Berkeley on March 2nd, UC students occupied Wheeler Hall, resulting in 17 arrests. On March 3, the number of protesters grew several fold after 9 students walked out on a fourth-story ledge of UC Berkeley's Wheeler Hall and locked down in the early afternoon. Oakland on March 2nd, Laney Community College students marched on the district office demanding to meet with the Administration and to have their concerns heard. One student was violently arrested by Alameda sheriffs. In San Francisco, hundreds of SFSU students and faculty marched and held a rally inside the Cesar Chavez Student Union. In Monterey, students, staff, faculty and community members gathered in the main quad of CSU Monterey Bay for a scheduled “Speak-Out”, then marched to the administration building for a sit-in and discussed education issues with the Provost and several other administrators.
