UPDATE 2:  Open University Schedule! (pdf)

Thursday’s General Assembly voted that a) All schools in the region are invited to converge on UC Berkeley for the 15th to protest public education cuts and privatization, as well as their exclusion from the UC; b) There will be two convergence times: noon and 5pm; c) All faculty and GSIs are asked to cancel their classes or, at a minimum, to hold them outside at Sproul Plaza.

We need your help with outreach. Please a) Ask your teachers to cancel class or hold it at Sproul. b) Post/pass out fliers. If you are in Berkeley stop by the info booth at Occupy Cal on Monday to pick some up. If you are further away, we can send you a PDF of the strike flier.

The Strike Committee meets every day at 5pm at Sproul Plaza, followed by General Assemblies at 6pm. Everybody is welcome.
