Statewide Protest at the Capitol: Will Politicians Listen?

Mariella Jimenez

Only time will tell whether politicians will listen to the anger of this state’s students and stop budget cuts, or whether they will listen to wealthy campaign contributors who want us to pay for the budget crisis created by the Wall Street recession and tax cuts for the rich. We say HELL NO!
WE MUST NOT ALLOW POLITICIANS THAT CHOICE: WE MUST RISE UP!

Meanwhile in London….

50,000 students marched against cuts to universities and increased tuition today, smashing into and occupying the conservative party offices. Seems like they are telling their leaders: stop the cuts or we will be ungovernable! Good show ole chaps!

    I was at the LA state capitol today. We need a much more militant fight-back. Obviously.
