Crisis Fest: Call to Action
CRISIS FEST: A Space for Music, Workshops, Dance, Joy and Protest!
On November 18th, hundreds of union members and students from all over
California will converge on UCLA in the leadup to the system-wide
protest of the Regents meeting. With the support of union and student
groups, there will be a day and night Tent City outside of Pauley
Pavillion to house our convergence!
Therfore, the students of UCLA have created the CRISIS FEST: A radical
space at Tent City to respond to the crisis with new ideas,
experiences, anger and joy.
We recognize the broader issues shaping the crisis: privatization, and
the economic downturn, the resegregation of the university and the
ongoing wars abroad.
But we don't want boring colloquiums or lectures: for one night we run
our education as self-education; we protest with fun and festivity!
There will be music, food, workshops and communal spirits in store for
And we want your help!
From 5pm until (at least) Midnight, we want to fill UCLA with your
music, poetry & spoken word, discussions, dance, visuals, videos,
d.i.y. workshops, and literature, in addition to what we've already
set up (and the list will only get longer).
We have discussions of the international student movement, dodgeball &
frisbee matches, mass camping on campus (bring your own tent!), screen
printing workshops, banner & art making, rock & traditional Mexican
music and a General Assembly to discuss the future of the movement.
DON'T ASK FOR PERMISSION! LET'S TAKE BACK THE UNIVERSITY AND MAKE IT
