Previously,
Look on HuffPo college and Education section - not one story about Oct 7th Day Of Action-- not even on their Impact section. How can folks have an impact if no one is willing to cover it? Checked google for stories at 930am PST-- surely something on the east coast or midwest must be going on by this time of day -- Nope, Nothing.
Really?
KRON 4 News in Norcal- SF had one story @ Cal in front of MLK Student Union at 730am- nothing on KGO, KPIX,KTVU. Is your local news covering it? If not, why?

Perhaps their corporate interests won't allow for it?

Note it, report it, complain about it.

We pay for the MSM.

  1. We just had our action at the University of Minnesota, Twin Cities. Probably about 200 people turned out, a bit less than we got on March 4. Fewer faculty participated than in March, unfortunately. Taking part in the national day of action was obviously not a priority for my so-called progressive colleagues. But a wider variety of students showed up, which was encouraging. I think we'll get pretty good coverage in the local media.
