Occupy Oakland General Strike

1 November 2011. 0 comments

With Occupy Oakland’s planned general strike and mass day of action set for Wednesday, November 2, the Peralta Community College District, and its four colleges will be open for classes as usual.

While we support Occupy Oakland’s efforts, we must continue our mission of teaching, educating students, and serving our community each and everyday.

We encourage our colleges and our faculty and staff to hold teach-ins on their campuses about the history of general strikes and organizing for economic justice.

We appreciate how passionately people may feel about these issues affecting our community and support your right to peaceful protest.

However, our first and foremost concern is the health, welfare and safety of our students and staff during Occupy Oakland’s day of action.


Dr. Wise E. Allen
