Just got forwarded this email and thought it would be worth posting. The UC Davis Graduate Student association is planning a meeting on Tuesday regarding the recent pepper spraying incident. Hope it is OK to post (one person said it was ...).
Special Meeting of GSA Representatives
Tuesday November 22, 2011
6:00 – 7:30 p.m.
There has been much activity by students, faculty and the
administration in response to the police action on campus. The GSA
executive committee met today to discuss how to develop a GSA response on behalf of graduate students. We are deeply concerned about these events and we have seen multiple calls for action from many different people and groups in response. The GSA must also respond to these events, address campus safety and bring attention to the broader concerns that have spurn demonstrations – the roll back of funding to public education and tuition hikes.
We are calling a special meeting on Tuesday November 22 at 6pm to discuss the GSA’s position and develop proposals for action that will be ultimately submitted to the UC Davis Administration on behalf of graduate students. This meeting will be facilitated to generate and discuss what items will be placed before the representatives at our regularly scheduled meeting on November 30th. The proposals developed will be voted on for inclusion in the GSA response.
Individual graduate groups and departments may be organizing their own responses. We encourage you to discuss with your fellow students what they want to have in a GSA response. Bring proposals to this special meeting and/or forward them to the GSA secretary
firstname.lastname@example.org by 3pm Tuesday.
Representatives, who are not able to attend, please send your
