UCSF Nursing Students Supporting Strike
On Wednesday, November 2nd, 2011, we UCSF nurses & nurse practitioner students will not be quietly studying. We will be at the General Strike in Oakland! We saw last Tuesday that protesters are always at risk of injury due to police brutality. We will act as street medics & tend to acute health needs that may arise during the strike and we will demonstrate our concern for our patients, who are rapidly losing access to healthcare, employment and higher education as a result of UC-wide, statewide and nationwide austerity measures. We will demonstrate as current and future healthcare providers for the 99% and as indebted UC students ourselves. Join us!
