CSUs, Community Colleges, and K-12.
The occupation statement from Santa Cruz was read in part to the
assembly. The Assembly voted overwhelmingly to endorse the Santa Cruz
occupation.(all in favor except for 2 abstentions)

“Defend Our Education” was a meeting  held at San Francisco State
University. The meeting was called to organize CSU, UCs, K-12 and
Community Colleges against the cuts in education. At the meeting, a
number of actions  were proposed and endorsed.  The Santa Cruz
occupation was the major ongoing action that was endorsed by the
group. Another outcome of the meeting was to participate and prepare
for a massive turnout for the upcoming Oct. 26 conference at UC
Berkeley, during which plans will be made for major concerted
collective action to fight the dismantling of public education.
