View the entire SIUC strike comic…
I live near Oakland and have been watching on the news what is going on. I am currently unemployed and working on finding a job. Man it’s tough. I have been tempted to go down to Oakland to be a part of the movement, but don’t like the images I have seen. Needless to say I am a bit scared. Thank you for your post!
The gatherings, while loud and … ah … energetic, have been peaceful. After the first morning, I haven’t heard reports of anything worse than some profanity shouted and birds flipped at the marchers and picketers. I haven’t heard any reports of the picketers doing anything worse than waving signs and chanting back. The SIUC police have done a great job of protecting everyone involved, no matter what side they’re on. I’m sure folks would welcome you with open arms if you’d like to come out and join in.
