AFSCME Week of Action at UCSC Dining Halls, Feb 8-11
On Monday through Thursday, February 8-11, UCSC staff and students will hold demonstrations at a different dinning hall for each of the four days, from 11:30am-1:30pm to protest the rising cost of student fees while student services are being slashed; major cuts to labor time while forcing workers to perform more labor; and workers, being rushed through their shifts, arenât able to thoroughly clean dining halls, resulting in unsanitary eating commons and an unsafe working environment.
WAMM Remains Vigilant While Settling Case Against Feds
The Wo/Men's Alliance for Medical Marijuana (WAMM), a collective providing cannabis under Californiaâs 1996 Compassionate Use Act (Prop. 215), along with the city and county of Santa Cruz, have reached a settlement in their unprecedented lawsuit against the federal government. WAMM's case was prompted by the US Drug Enforcement Administration's raid of their medicinal garden in Davenport on September 5, 2002, in which armed agents terrorized residents and patients, and seized more than 160 cannabis plants.
