Occupy/Strike IU

Discussion in 'News and Current Events' started by DontFawkesWithAnon, Apr 8, 2013.

  1. Sorry if this is posted in the wrong spot, new here ;)

    Anyway, I was wondering if anyone was down to join in on this? I agree with whats going on here, but wanted to check if anyone else wanted to go. I thought it would be nice to say Anons are on your side :)

    The short version? IU is protesting wage freeze, tuition spikes, and inequality of some laws up for debate. Students/faculty/employees are walking out and striking. This is apparently 6-7 months in planning and has made national news.

    From the link- Our branch, located in New Albany, Indiana, is working at Indiana University Southeast campus to generate support for the strike at this satellite campus.

    This is close to me..

    Ok...
    Well Im not havin much luck gettin around the people that are against the strike..lol But, per the FB page of the students, they are trying to get the community involved..so a show of anon support would most likely be welcomed also. I do not have a FB account (as I pretty much despise that social avenue)..so I havent contacted them to find out for sure-
    DFWA- if you have facebook..maybe you could check with them. If you need the link, let me know-

    I did find out that Bloomington police are pretty kewl :) They have no rules against masks/costumes in peaceful protest..but, Indiana Univeristy has its own police dept and considerin this is a school..security is gonna be tight, so Im betting any coverups are a no-no. Which is fine..

    And..Im tryin to trade hours with a coworker so I can attend
