Students for a Democratic Society has called for a day of action on October 7th to defend education:
We believe that students should not have to suffer fee and tuition hikes so that top administrators can maintain their six-figure salaries. We believe faculty and campus workers should not be subject to mandatory furloughs to maintain wasteful and unbalanced budgets. We believe that ethnic, womens and LGBTQ programs are NOT expendable. We say, “chop from the top!”, that cuts should be made to top administrators with bloated salaries. … SDS is calling on students and youth to join with us as we plan for the National Day of Action on Oct. 7th. This is the day called for by students, faculty, and campus workers in California, where protests against tuition hikes, racism, and the privatization of the UC system schools erupted in September of 2009, inspiring people across the country and the world. On this day we will say no to the budget cuts that threaten our access and the quality of our education.
This could be a good date for Wobblies in the education industry to launch actions.
