Unions for teachers and other school employees will bus more than 3,000 San Francisco City College students to Sacramento March 22 for a rally protesting budget cuts.

According to the CCSF website:

March in March" will rally to Sacramento to our State

Capitol for the Governor, the legislators, and the public to hear our

voice. The group gathering from students, faculty, staff,

administrators, and constituent groups of California affects the right

for our education.

During the past week or so City College campuses have become veritable

recruiting centers for the rally, with rally-instruction white-boards

greeting students in lobbies, teachers giving presentations

about the rally in advance of classes, and organizers signing up

students in class. City College's Web site, meanwhile, includes a "March

in March" section encouraging students to sign up for the bus trip.


However, CCSF spokeswoman Martha Lucey assures us that the trip isn't being financed directly with school funds."I do want to set the record straight," she said. "No City College funds are being used." These are donations from the American Federation of Teachers, the SEIU, the college bookstore, the administrator's association, and the Associated Students of City College.

Lucey said 62 50-seat buses have been rented for the trip.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
