Join the Holistic Health Network and thousands of students across California in the fight for education! The Holistic Health Network and Internship will be meeting at noon in the HH Learning Center, then going as a group down to the Malcom X Plaza for T-shirt and sign-making. All are welcome to join us there, or along with everyone else at the Plaza.

The Holistic Health Network phrase for T-shirts is “Whole-ism and Higher Education, Holistic Health Network.”

Below is the rally schedule, provided by unions of SF State faculty and staff:

10:00 to 12:15: Informational Picket Line on 19th Avenue & Holloway
12:15 to 12:30: Picket Line march to Malcolm X Plaza

2:00 to 3:30: Teach-in, Malcolm X Plaza
3:30 to 4:00: Board MUNI or shuttle to BART (The first one hundred boarding at 19th St. Muni with a March 4th t-shirt or protest sign will receive a pass for boarding)
4:00 to 4:45: SF State community will gather on the steps of the Asian Art Museum in the Civic Center before proceeding to the 5 PM rally area.
5:00 to 6:30: Rally for California’s Future, SF Civic Center.  Stand together with Pre-K to Higher Education educators, parents, students and all those who work in the public sector to send a message to Sacramento

“The executive board of the SF State chapter of CFA adopted the following statement on February 25th:

California Faculty Association (CFA), San Francisco State University Chapter shares in the anger and frustration of students, faculty and staff regarding budget cuts that are destroying public education. We believe that peaceful protest and civil disobedience are powerful forces for change in a democratic society, and we defend the rights of individuals and organizations to practice them. However, CFA does not support or condone violence in any form. We oppose any vandalism or destruction of property. We also oppose the excessive use of force by law enforcement. This is our university – students, faculty, staff, and the community – and such acts undermine efforts to protect San Francisco State from those who would dismantle it. We seek a university founded upon mutual respect, social justice and accountability. 
The governor’s chief of staff acknowledged that last fall’s campus demonstrations pushed him to raise the amount of money he proposed for next year’s CSU budget.  That pretty well tells us one of the things CSU needs: more large peaceful demonstrations for public education and services. Ultimately, it is the integrity of our position and actions rather than violence that promotes the establishment of a community which supports a long-term commitment to education and social justice.” –-Ramón Castellblanch
Chapter President
