CRISIS FEST: A Space for Music, Workshops, Discussions, Dance, Joy and Protest!
LIST OF EVENTS & UPDATES: http://crisisfestucla.blogspot.com/
UPDATE: CRISIS FEST WILL NOT BUDGE: IT'S ON NOV 18TH 5PM-ALL NIGHT, OUTSIDE PAULEY PAVILLION
THE REGENTS MAY BE AFRAID, AND MOVE THEIR VOTE ON TUITION HIKES TO THE MORNING OF THE 18TH (INSTEAD OF THE 19TH), BUT CRISIS FEST HAS NOTHING TO FEAR! WE WILL NOT CHANGE LOCATION OR TIME FOR ANYONE! NOVEMBER 18TH, 5PM TO ALL NIGHT, IT'S ON!
CRISIS FEST CALL TO ACTION
On November 18th, hundreds of union members and students from all over California will converge on UCLA in the leadup to the system-wide protest of the Regents meeting. With the support of union and student groups, there will be a day and night Tent City outside of Pauley Pavillion to house our convergence!
Therfore, the students of UCLA have created the CRISIS FEST: A radical space at Tent City to respond to the crisis with new ideas, experiences, anger and joy.
We recognize the broader issues shaping the crisis: privatization, and the economic downturn, the resegregation of the university and the ongoing wars abroad.
But we don't want boring colloquiums or lectures: for one night we run our education as self-education; we protest with fun and festivity! There will be music, food, workshops and communal spirits in store for everyone.
Want to put on an event? THEN DO IT!
DON'T ASK PERMISSION, LET'S TAKE BACK OUR UNIVERSITY!
Have your band play, put on a workshop, read your poetry, project a movie on the wall, do a fashion show, dj a set, whatever!
