The UC has voted to raise tuition by 32%! Students were brutally assaulted at UCLA for using their right of freedom of speech! Cuts are coming from the bottom not the top, while the administrators are getting raises workers are getting fired and student class sizes get larger. It is time that we as students come together in solidarity to tell the UC it’s our UC!!!
Come out and hear stories from those affected and find out what we can do from here! Please invite at least 10 others. This is our time in history will we live up to the responsibility?
We stress that this is a peaceful rally, however, we as citizens of the United States can and will exercise of First amendment Rights of free speech!
When they raise our tuition 32%, even studying is a form of resistance.All quarter, our library hours have been inadequate, and UCI administration is threatening to lay off even more library staff. The quality of our education falters when our library closes at 11pm during the week at 5pm on weekends. Even Finals Week is not a good enough excuse for extended library hours–the weekend before finals, the library is open:
8am-5pm on Friday, December 4
1pm-5pm on Saturday, December 5
1pm-5pm on Sunday, December 6
8am-11pm throughout Finals WeekWe don’t need a crowded study hall (Gateway), we need books and respect!—————–
Friday December 4:
3pm: Teach-in outside Langson Library about the budget cuts
4pm: Study-in inside Langson Library!
5pm-All Night: teach-ins, workshops, films, music, food, quiet study areas, and group study areas.
Saturday December 5:
1pm: General Assembly, Graduate Reading Room
(schedule subject to change)
The study-in will continue indefinitely!
Be sure to bring study materials, blankets, and food!
We are trying to make the Library into a safe space for queer/trans and AB540 students; please post suggestions below. All bathrooms will be gender-neutral!
If there is something you want to see happen at the study-in, DO IT! You don’t need anyone’s permission, just post what you’re doing on this page or announce it at Langson!
Finally, because the Library is named after Jack Langson, local real estate baron, it is appropriate that we rename it to something relevant to students. It appears we have near-unanimity: it will be called Langston Hughes Library!
To address two concerns echoed by many students:
We are in the process of devising plans in case power is shut off or administrators deny us entry at 4pm.
We are looking for faculty to give teach-ins and host review sessions inside liberated Langson Library. The presence of faculty not only will create stronger bonds between teachers and students on campus, but will also deter admin and the police from shutting us down! Tell your teachers that there will be space available for them anytime between 4pm Friday and 5pm Saturday, and maybe later; if they want to do a teach-in, they are free to talk about whatever they want. Anything else they want to do is totally fine too! If you need help in a class, emphasize the review session option!
