March 13 Walk-Out
A walk-out is a form of resistance. When students walk out, they are refusing their roles as students and are participating in real and direct action in the politics that effect their daily lives.
We ask the students at Georgia State, and members of Occupy Georgia State, to join in a walk out of class on March 13. We are walking out to resist the university becoming increasingly privatized, and increasingly segregated by fee hikes and the HOPE scholarship cuts, and to refuse the ban on undocumented students. We as students, faculty, staff, and members of the Georgia State community and beyond, are walking out against the austerity measures passed both against the university, and the overall community.
We will walk out of class and rally in the GSU courtyard, and march on the Board of Regents meeting which is down the street from Georgia State University.
We seek an end to the oppresive workings of the University. We acknowledge that we may attain this goal only through respecting our collective diversity of tactics. We aim to remove the power from the university, from the apathy of the Regents, from the government, from capitalism.
