Staying Power (Statement on Friday evening from the Sac State student protesters)
Posted on April 16, 2011 by sacstatesqe
We have had a fantastic Friday with all the love and support shown to Sac State, thank you everyone! We had students come in from San Jose State, SF State, UC Santa Cruz, and UC Davis you guys are awesome. Our faculty continued to stop by with their classes and we continue to educate about the movement. We can’t wait to see where this road takes us.
We had a press conference at 4pm with local media, which was successful. We responded to President Gonzalez’ position to our demands. We are not satisfied with his response. We feel that as our president that he should be on the side of the students, which he is not.
So its the weekend and we are STAYING!! We will not leave until threatened with police action. We are a non violent group and will stay that way.
We are so empowered that we have so much support from our campus and all throughout the state of California and the nation all the way to Cornell and to the progressive student union at George Washington University. Even a group in Glasgow, Scotland is reaching out to us and supporting us. YOU GUYS ARE AWESOME! Its you that keeps us going, if it were just a small isolated group we could not have made it this far.
We are entering our 52nd hour of occupation and going strong!
