UCSA endorses Sept. 24 walkout

UCSA, the University of California Students Associations, which represents over 200,000 students in the UC system,  unanimously endorsed the Sept. 24 walkout.

This is particularly important since one of the arguments against the walkout is that it would impact the students, who would show up to empty classrooms on the first day of the quarter. The UC Davis Provost/EVC even allocated funds to make sure that this would not happen (supposedly to hire faculty replacements — am I the only one who finds this appalling?).

This argument is now pre-empted. It's important that faculty and students stand together, on the 24th or any other day, for "the continued defense of the future of public education in California."
