UCSF Nursing Students Join Oakland General 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!
Join us in the Oakland General Strike November 2nd, fellow students & nurses! If you want to meet us on the Parnassus campus, we will gather from 3 to 3:15pm in front of the Medical Sciences Building, 513 Parnassus Ave on Wednesday. Look for red crosses on arms made of duct tape. We will Muni and BART together to 12th St. Oakland to be part of--& serve as street medics for--the 5pm march to shut down the Port of Oakland. If you have supplies (hand sanitizer, gloves, TB masks, Maalox, bottled water, gauze, Band-Aids, goggles, etc.), please bring them. We will provide an overview of protest first aid guidelines while we ride there together.
