Wed 4/22, 2pm: Walkout against the budget cuts at City College!

Filed under: Uncategorized — Barnard-Columbia ISO @ 11:17 pm

*SAVE City College of New York!*

Join students in opposing imminent budget cuts and up to $300-per-semester tuition increases at CCNY. At a time of the unraveling economic crisis when our educations should be funded more, we’re being threatened with these attacks. In response, students, faculty, and community labor have joined forces to say that cuts on anyone is a detriment to everyone. Striking
workers from Stella D’Oro, as well as students from around CUNY and other
NYC schools, will be showing support in our struggle to save an affordable
CCNY. Let’s get together for these upcoming events and show that students
and the city united can win educational rights!

*TUESDAY, APRIL 21, 12-2pm*
Morales/Shakur Center NAC rm 3/201*
Campus Teach-In to Stop the Budget Cuts:
Why You Should Walk Out on April 22nd*

–Join a discussion explaining the current potential budget cuts and tuition
hikes, the history of student struggle at CCNY, and why it must be renewed.
