Sacramento Protest March

"Our Position - No Tuition!" This was a 10,000 person protest march in 1967, theoretically against a tuition hike for the University of California, a hike sponsored by our new - and former movie star - Governor Ronald Reagan. But the march attracted all sorts of anti-Reagan and anti-establishment groups, including a large contingent of United Farm Workers. Of course, the more things change, the more they remain the same. I'm posting this picture in 2005, and we face many of the same issues in California, the nation and the world. Our new Governor - and former movie star - Arnold Schwartzenegger wants to boost tuition and cut state services, just as his predecessor did.

Some things never change. I see a sign that says Education is the Key, Don't Lock us out. Last night on the local news I saw parents and students protesting school closures due to budget cuts, and they had signs with the Bush43 slogan "No child left behind - Don't leave me behind".
