Strike March 4th California and Pre-Game Communiqué

That’s Not the Sky, That’s the Ceiling.

With the slogan We Are The Crisis, California’s public and private universities, college and community college campuses are experiencing a mass wave of radicalism and revolutionary heat unseen in like forever. With whole academic departments and unions acting in solidarity with occupiers and strikers, the planned actions for tomorrow (March 4th) are gonna be interesting to say the least.

Get hip to the goings on in your area, how you can support the struggle, and the underlying issues at stake here.

Now’s the time to act.
