UW-Milwaukee, December 8: Sign the Petition! No Cuts to Higher Education!

SDS will be presenting this petition to UW-Milwaukee’s Chancellor Mark Mone. We encourage all students and community members to sign, invite, and share!

We demand:
1) No cuts to instructional units! Instead, the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee should “chop from the top” by cutting non-instructional positions and salaries in excess of $80k per year. Since 2011, UWM has added nearly fifty such positions and increased their salaries by an average of nearly 10% per year.
2) Chancellor Mone must publicly pledge to oppose all tuition increases while he is chancellor.
3) Wages for campus workers and stipends for graduate teaching assistants must be increased.
4) Resource centers and services that serve oppressed or marginalized students, such as African-American Student Academic Services, the Black Cultural Center, the Roberto Hernandez Center, the Women’s Resource Center, and the LGBT Resource Center, must continue to be funded.
5) Tenure and shared governance must be preserved.

Tell the Department of Justice: Investigate Clinic Violence as Domestic Terrorism

SIGN PETITION: http://tinyurl.com/q5op3uk

On Friday, Nov. 27, a shooter entered a Planned Parenthood clinic in Colorado Springs, killing at least 3 and injuring several others.

This attack, as well as other recent arson attacks on Planned Parenthood clinics, have come after the highly publicized release of heavily edited videos by a sham organization run by extremists who will stop at nothing to deny women legal abortion services.

These attacks on clinics are part of a long history of ideologically-driven violence. They’re perpetrated by an extreme minority that’s committed to ruling through fear and intimidation.

Let’s call this what it is—domestic terrorism. It’s time for an investigation to get to the bottom of this.

Add your name to tell the Department of Justice to direct the FBI to investigate these attacks as domestic terrorism.
