“This is a vigil for the students whose human dignity was violated as targets of police violence on November 9th, and for the police officers whose human dignity was degraded in the execution of their duty to obey orders.”

UCSD Faculty Association Endorsement of Occupy San Diego (Oct. 20, 2011)
The reduction in support for our public University system will further the decline in educational and financial opportunities for the people of California, and exasperate the gap between the vast majority of our population and the wealthiest 1%. We believe this violates both the spirit and the law of California’s Master Plan for Higher Education, as well as the promise of the American Dream. We can no longer trade public support for education to public welfare for corporations.
It is time to stand up for those who are trying to improve their circumstances and provide for their families. It is time to stand up for what is right. We, the members of the UC San Diego Faculty Association applaud the actions the Occupy Movement to highlight the inequities in our society. We are in this together. We are the 99%.”
