April 15 (2009) – UCSC Community Forum*

5-7pm – Conference Room D (above the baytree bookstore building)

“We will not pay for your crisis!”

Concerned about class sizes, the conditions of your labor on campus, increased tuition, the elimination of jobs, rent hikes, and poverty wages?

What: A public space to discuss, and plan action against the long running corporatization of UCSC as well as the priorities of the UC administrators during this financial crisis. The Forum intends to bring a wide range of voices together from undergraduates, campus workers, graduate students, professors/lectures, to union members in order to advance an alternative vision of a truly public university, so that we can build the foundation to challenge the UC’s logic of scarcity.

Who: you, members of campus organizations, workers, community members.

Action: not only will we discuss our points of commonality at the forum, we will actively plan a Day of Action to begin to make our voices heard.

April 22 (2009) – “Stop the Budget Cuts” Action

Initiated by the Ad-hoc Committee to Stop the Budget Cuts

Meet us at the quarry near the bookstore this Wednesday at noon to voice your concerns about the budget cuts. Recently, LALS professors have been listed for termination, Community Studies Department has been placed on the chopping block, 10% cuts to all departments, 9.3% tuition increase and many other issues have begun to sink into the reality of students on campus. This is our time to tell the UC administrators to end the budget cut BS! The decision about the two LALS professors have a deadline of May 1st and thus action must be taken immediately!

Media Coverage:

April 22 – Community Forum Action Planning Continuation*

In the wake of the Community Forum, more action planning will take place. Meeting will take place at Stevenson Game Room (near the Cafe) at 6pm.

April 29 – Escalation of Budget Fight Back

More details will be available soon.

Through collaboration with other organizations on campus we will be holding another rally and march similar in nature to our April 22 action. Our goal for this action will be to turn out more people in preparation for May Day and to demand that Community Studies and LALS professors not be cut! Planning for future actions are still in their preliminary stages, so take part and help shape the movement!

  3. The new Zune browser is surprisingly good, but not as good as the iPod’s. It works well, but isn’t as fast as Safari, and has a clunkier interface. If you occasionally plan on using the web browser that’s not an issue, but if you’re planning to browse the web alot from your PMP then the iPod’s larger screen and better browser may be important.
