Banner Hangs against the cuts. Protest Jindal tomorrow!
Some students dropped a banner to oppose the immediately effective cuts that could harm our education and make our state fall further behind as an educational leader. We oppose the possible faculty furloughs and pay cuts, we oppose the possible closure of the university on certain days to save money at the very time we should be expanding higher education if we have any hope of economic development in the future, and we oppose Bobby Jindal's plans for further cuts in the future, while at the same time allowing the LSU system top administrators to take home the state's highest salaries. Cut from the bloated and over-paid administration, not from the people who directly are providing the education our state needs to be competitive in the future.
Tomorrow, Friday, 4/9/10 there will be a protest march/second line downtown at 5:30pm against Bobby Jindal and the GOP while they are in town having a convention. the Save UNO group will be there, you should, too!
