This is a reminder for the media executives who don’t want their reporters covering anything other than the weather, march madness or George Clooney coming to Maysville.
As we reported weeks ago, students at the University of Louisville will protest Governor Steve Beshear’s lovely handling of higher education cost increases in Kentucky this Wednesday by walking out. At 1:11 P.M. this Wednesday, March 26, 2008, students will gather in front of the UofL President’s Office at Grawemeyer Hall (near the intersection of 3rd St & Eastern Pkwy).
From a Facebook group set up for the event:
The University of Louisville consistently places the burden of our state’s budget crises on US – the STUDENTS. This is completely unacceptable, and we are calling on the university administration to explore every option available as to ensure tuition rates DO NOT increase above the rate of inflation for the 2008-2009 school year.
All UofL students are urged to walk out of their classes on Wednesday, March 26th, at 1:11 pm, and attend a rally in front of Grawemeyer Hall near the The Thinker in protest of our university administration’s constant refusal to include OUR VOICE in matters that affect OUR lives.
- What: Students to walk out at UofL
- When: Wednesday, March 26 at 1:11 P.M.
- Where: Rally in front of The Thinker / President’s office @ Grawemeyer Hall
So, media, show up. Give the everyday student in Kentucky a voice.
