In case you missed it, today’s Daily Cal features an op/ed authored by 2 of the 9 ledge occupiers. We would like to thank our PR agent for getting our site mentioned in this fine publication — good work, Dan!
On March 2, a national day of action to defend public education, 17 people were arrested for refusing to leave Wheeler Hall. Less than 24 hours later, nine students locked themselves to a ledge atop the building, four stories above ground, with four demands: 1. Stop the $1.4 billion in cuts to California public education. 2. Allow democratic decision making in the budgetary process. 3. An end to student repression through a politically motivated student conduct process. 4. An immediate end to Operational Excellence (OE), the campus’s budget cut program.
