|Event Type||Party/Street Party|
|Organizer/Author||UC Students for a democratic Regents|
Come to the March 19th UC Regents meeting and make a stand for a better University and a better world.
It's the 5th anniversary of the Iraq war - time to stand up!
We will create an Alternative Regents Meeting to express our vision for a public University that truly serves the common welfare.
Plus: free food, art, music, dance, and party!
Five years ago, George W. Bush started a war against the Iraqi people. His justification? “Weapons of mass destruction.” A lie. But we know where the WMDs are. Every single nuclear weapon in the U.S. arsenal was designed by the University of California. Tell the UC Regents:
No more nuclear weapons! Money for education not war!
The UC Regents plan to vote to raise student tuition 10%. Join students from across California in demanding that UC fulfill its public mission of serving all of California, including low-income students and underrepresented minorities. We demand:
No fee increases and eliminate the discriminatory SAT!
Plus: we demand fair wages for UC workers, free speech for student activists, stop police brutality, release the 13,000 Native Remains, cancel UCSC LRDP, permanent Multicultural Center at Cal, democratize the Regents, and more....
Stand up for a just, diverse, peaceful University - one that is democratically governed and promotes the common welfare, free from the corrupting influences of militarism and corporate interests.
See you there!
