On April 21st, over a thousand supporters of higher education held a march and rally at the Capitol to protest proposed cuts to state funding of higher education. CUCFA was there. Some of the marcher’s chants included “kick us out and we’ll vote you out” and “education… liberation.” Here are a few photographs from the event.
