Protest in Long Beach.
8 a.m. on Monday, December 16 at the Chancellor’s Office located at 400 Golden Shore Avenue in downtown Long Beach.
To all members of the campus community,
The California State University’s noble and unique mission is “to encourage
and provide access to an excellent education to all who are prepared for
and wish to participate in collegiate study.” For many years California
and the CSU has been looked upon as a shining example of a State committed
to an affordable and accessible education.
Current economic conditions have left the state with a $30 billion deficit.
This past Friday, Governor Davis released his mid-year budget proposal.
In his proposal, Governor Davis proposed a $60 million budget cut to the
CSU system’s 2002-2003 operating budget to be effective immediately.
The Board of Trustees of the CSU have called a special meeting on December
16, 2002 – coincidentally scheduled on the first day of finals week - to
discuss the mid-year cuts and their effect on the CSU. Chancellor Charles
Reed has proposed a 10% fee increase for undergraduate students and a 15%
increase for graduate students. This proposed increase is to be
implemented immediately. Students unable to pay the increase in fees will
be dis-enrolled from the university.
We cannot let this action by the Board of Trustees go unchallenged.
Aprox time 8 AM on Monday, December 16 at the CSU Chancellor's office located at 400 Golden Shore Avenue in downtown Long Beach. Take back your streets and schools! Students, Workers, and anyone who hopes for better education in california come out and support us!
Come join us in the fight to
keep higher education affordable for all Californians!
