List of March 4 Events! (Updated)


New UCSD Schedule via UCSD Coalition for Educational Justice

  • ALL DAY: OPEN UNIVERSITY TEACH-OUT: We are asking professors and TAs to teach their classes/sections outside as a sign of solidarity with the March 4 protesters. If you have class on Thursdays, help us spread the word about this by asking your instructor to participate in this.
  • 11:00am – Press Conference (w/ panel of Workers, Staff, Undergrad, Grads, and Faculty). Location TBD. Stay tuned for that.
  • 11:30am – Meet up in front of the Gilman Dr. Parking Structure (corner of Villa la Jolla Dr.) and march on over to Library Walk
  • 12:00pm-1:30pm – Rally in front of Geisel Library (Silent Tree) on Library Walk (there will be lots of speakers and performers; more details to follow).
  • 1:30pm – Mobilize people to get on #150 buses and go downtown for March to the Governor’s office (see below)
  • Ending: we’re still figuring out how this will end. Some students have discussed setting up a tent city. More details about that to follow.

The events that the UCSD Coalition is planning are intended to be peaceful demonstrations intended to bring together as many people as possible to denounce attacks against public higher education in California. We do not envision any sort of problems with the police, but just in case, we are recommending that people read THIS “know your rights” pamphlet (courtesy of our friends at the San Diego ACLU).

UPDATE : If you will be participating in the Teach-Out on March 4th, please make sure to fill out the survey available HERE. This will assist us in the important task of  figuring out logistics for the day.

Events in downtown San Diego on March 4:

As part of The March 4th National Call for a Day of Action, The Save Our Schools Coalition of California will be marching from Balboa Park to the Governor’s Office. We are asking all UCSD students, faculty, and staff to join this march. The schedule for that is:

  • 2:30pm – 3:30pm – Gather at Park Blvd & Presidents Way (in Balboa Park, adjacent to the World Beat Center).
  • 3:30pm – 4:15pm – March to Governors Office (in Front St.). The walk is about 1.2 long (approx 35 mins).
  • 4:15pm – 5:30pm – Demonstration in front of Governors Office in San Diego

Public transportation from UCSD: We are asking that UCSD students and personnel take the 150 Express Bus to the 10th St. & C St. bus stop. From there, walk 2 blocks east to Park Blvd. (SD City College) and then walk about 1/2 mile north on Park Blvd (about 12 mins walking) until you reach the intersection of Park Blvd. and Presidents Way.

We will post more details about March 4 once they become available. In the meantime, check out the following National call to action.

National Call for March 4 Strike and Day of Action To Defend Public Education

Click HERE to be redirected to the March 4 Day of Action statweide organizing page.

California has recently seen a massive movement erupt in defense of public education — but layoffs, fee hikes, cuts, and the re-segregation of public education are attacks taking place throughout the country. A nationwide resistance movement is needed.

We call on all students, workers, teachers, parents, and their organizations and communities across the country to massively mobilize for a Strike and Day of Action in Defense of Public Education on March 4, 2010. Education cuts are attacks against all of us, particularly in working-class communities and communities of color.

The politicians and administrators say there is no money for education and social services. They say that “there is no alternative” to the cuts. But if there’s money for wars, bank bailouts, and prisons, why is there no money for public education?

We can beat back the cuts if we unite students, workers, and teachers across all sectors of public education — Pre K-12, adult education, community colleges, and state-funded universities. We appeal to the leaders of the trade union movement to support and organize strikes and/or mass actions on March 4. The weight of workers and students united in strikes and mobilizations would shift the balance of forces entirely against the current agenda of cuts and make victory possible.

Building a powerful movement to defend public education will, in turn, advance the struggle in defense of all public-sector workers and services and will be an inspiration to all those fighting against the wars, for immigrants rights, in defense of jobs, for single-payer health care, and other progressive causes.

Why March 4? On October 24, 2009 more than 800 students, workers, and teachers converged at UC Berkeley at the Mobilizing Conference to Save Public Education. This massive meeting brought together representatives from over 100 different schools, unions, and organizations from all across California and from all sectors of public education. After hours of open collective discussion, the participants voted democratically, as their main decision, to call for a Strike and Day of Action on March 4, 2010. All schools, unions and organizations are free to choose their specific demands and tactics — such as strikes, rallies, walkouts, occupations, sit-ins, teach-ins, etc. — as well as the duration of such actions.

Let’s make March 4 an historic turning point in the struggle against the cuts, layoffs, fee hikes, and the re-segregation of public education.

  1. hey, thanks for all of your updates here and on twitter. for twitter, i do have some advice: you can use an URL-shortening service like http://www.bit.ly to post web addresses without wasting characters, and also, you can start adding hash-tags related to your posts (to reach more people), such as #occupyca and #march4

    in solidarity!

  2. Thanks!
