"November 28th – In solidarity with UC Davis , UC Berkeley, CUNY Schools and all students who are defending their right to protest against rising tuition cost and out of control student debt. We ask you to STRIKE! No work, no school – please join together in a central area of your choosing and stand up against the VIOLENCE and SUPPRESSION that is happening in our schools.
Please abide by the Pledge of Non-Violence to Participate in the Student Strike:
We are an open, participatory, democratic, horizontal, peaceful, and nonviolent movement.
We are not a leaderless movement, we are a movement of leaders.
As a nonviolent movement, we have agreed to refrain from violence against any person, from carrying weapons, and from destruction of property.
We reject violence, including property destruction, because we recognize that it undermines popular support and discourages the broadest possible participation among the 99%.
We believe nonviolence promotes unity, strength of message, and an environment in which everyone’s voice might be heard.
We affirm that it is the personal responsibility of every individual participant in our movement to promote and maintain nonviolent discipline and to intervene to prevent violent action by anyone in our movement.”~OccupyColleges (http://occupycolleges.org/all-student-general-strike-november-28-2011-2/)
There is a running list of over 50 colleges that will be participating in this general strike tomorrow. #Solidarity
