San Francisco City College Students, Faculty and community members as well as SF Supervisor Shamann Walton spoke out in front of San Francisco City Hall on 2/4/20 to support the $2.7 million appropriation by the City and County of San Francisco to restore 300 classes that have been canceled by CCSF Chancellor Mark Rocha.

Seven Supervisors have supported the legislation but it requires 8 to become veto proof by SF Mayor London Breed who has said opposes the appropriation.

The speakout was called by the Higher Education Action Team HEAT had students from CCSF, faculty from AFT 2121 and also a faculty member and Executive Board member from Peralta Community College.

The California State Legislature has passed bills supported by the Lumina Foundation and ALEC to corporatize Community Colleges and punishing community colleges if working class students do not graduate within 2 years.

Additionally CCSF Chancellor Mark Rocha and Supervisor Mandelman are supporting the privatization of the college by selling off additional campuses to supposedly solve the budget crisis.
