While we at Reclaim UC remain skeptical about Adbusters' anti-consumerist, electoral pressure politics, the financial services industry is at the forefront of today's privatization of California public education - setting university priorities and profiting massively off of student debt.
We encourage everyone to participate in the upcoming coordinated September 17th occupations of Wall Street in NY and the financial district in SF.
