FRIDAY RALLY to Save CSU 12 pm on campus and at 4 pm at the Thompson Center in Chicago

A message from our UPI Chapter:

It is now or never to support UPI, CSU students/community, CTU, Fight for 15, and the many others coming to CSU this Friday to rally with us at 12 noon. So first:

1. Commit to coming to the rally. Take the plunge, commit, and be there.

2. Come leaflet in HWH from 11-2 tomorrow (THURS). Help spread the word. Please "comment" if you can help for an hour.

3. No excuses--we need members to help us make posters/signs on Thursday (yes tomorrow) from 3-5 in SCI 114. There will also be sign/poster making on Friday April 1st at 10:30 in the cafeteria. Get creative with your slogans. Again please "comment" that you are coming.

4. Day of the rally. We still need volunteers to hold clip boards and help collect contact info from CTU guests who may be CSU alums. We also need 2-3 people to take photographs, and 2 people to help keep track of time for the speakers. Please comment at the Save CSU facebook page to indicate your willingness to help us.

11:30: music & gathering outside Rotunda of Cordell Reed SUB (rain location is gym in JDC).

12:00: rally outside Rotunda of Cordell Reed SUB (rain location is gym in JDC).

1:00: March from CSU campus to 95th Street Red Line Station; stops at Harlan Community Academy High School & McDonald’s West of Red Line.

1:45: Board Red Line trains to downtown Chicago.

4:00: Rally outside Thompson Center in downtown Chicago.


  1. Is it true that the BOT stripped Calhoun of firing power so he could not get rid of Wayne's people? From the outside looking in, if this is true, it's long past time to march against the people who put CSU in the situation it's in today - the BOT and Watson. Now that you're all in the same boat, what do you have to lose?

  2. If true, it would explain a lot. I can tell you one thing I am not marching and rallying to save CSU for the likes of Watson, Henderson, Young, and Zollar.
