This week, we have seen excessive force used against non-violent protesters at UC Berkeley, UCLA, CSU Long Beach, and UC Davis...We demand that the Chancellors of the University of California cease using police violence to repress non-violent political protests...
We call for greater attention to the substantive issues that motivate the protests regarding the privatization of education. With massive cuts in state funding and rising tuition costs...public education is undergoing a severe divestment. Student debt has reached unprecedented levels as bank profits swell.
