The Numbers (in this case) Don't Lie

The numbers are in, and this afternoon's rally for education and against budget cuts, layoffs, and tuition increases, turned out an estimated 150+ students, staff, and faculty.  The rally was part of today's walkout, in which on Evergreen's campus, most classes were cancelled.  For a Friday, 150 plus is a damn good number.  That means people are pissed and worried. Given that this was the first action here at Evergreen, I'm hopeful that we, like other state workers, students, and community members in other states, can have an impact on legislative decisions.  My thanks to the organizers of the rally/walkout.
