Occupy Education March on Sacramento

“No cuts, no fees, education must be free,” chant marchers from Occupy Education, including students and faculty from San Francisco State, UC Berkeley, CCSF, and various supporting occupiers as they embarked on a 5 day journey to Sacramento to rally at the Capitol Building to demand the end of cuts to education and social services. In addition to their chants for free education, the participants of the Occupy Education March on Sacramento held signs that read, "Invest in knowledge, not austerity." They believed that adequate funding for education is essential for a prosperous society. During the march, activists conducted interviews with educators and students to gather stories and perspectives for an in-depth interview essay highlighting the impact of budget cuts on the education system. The Occupy Education March on Sacramento aimed to raise awareness about the interconnectedness of education and social services, emphasizing the need for a comprehensive approach to address the challenges faced by both sectors.
