March 5: ’Occupy the Capitol’
Published Mar 7, 2012 9:44 PM
On March 1, Occupy Education California called for local actions building up to the March 5 statewide Occupy the Capitol event. Students from Laney College and the University of California at Berkeley marched to Oscar Grant Plaza in Oakland. Some went on to march to the State Capitol, planning to arrive for the March 5 event. The students’ statement said in part: “We refuse to pay for the crisis created by the 1%. We refuse to accept the dismantling of our schools and universities, while the banks and corporations make record profits. We refuse to accept educational resegregation, massive tuition increases, outrageous student debt, and increasing privatization and corporatization.”
