SPEAK OUT to Fight the Hike!Added to the calendar on Monday Dec 1st, 2014 9:05 PM
On December 2, 1964, Mario Savio stood on the Sproul steps and inspired the students of this university to take a stand. On the 50th Anniversary of this historic day, The Open UC and Cal Progressive Coalition will be coming together to commemorate the legacy of the Freedom of Speech Movement, and to remind every single student on this campus that our voices have power.
If you believe that public education should be affordable and accessible, join us. If you believe that the state and the Regents should hear our voices and find an alternative to tuition hikes, join us.
12PM: Rally at Sproul Plaza to SPEAK OUT in defense of our public education and our public commons.

"There's a time when the operation of the machine becomes so odious, makes you so sick at heart, that you can't take part! You can't even passively take part! And you've got to put your bodies upon the gears and upon the wheels…upon the levers, upon all the apparatus, and you've got to make it stop! And you've got to indicate to the people who run it, to the people who own it, that unless you're free, the machine will be prevented from working at all!" - Mario Savio
