Me sorprende escuchar a Jay decir que el presidente de la
universidad de Puerto Rico es dirigido por el gobernador Fortuno cuando el
mejor que nadie sabe TODOS, incluyendo al gobernador, somos manipulados por los
Estados Unidos de America.
Jay, lee las noticias de Estados Unidos para que eduques a tus radio oyentes. Tu tienes las herramientas para llevar el mensaje y educar a personas sobre la situacion precaria que se encuentra la gran nacion a la cual el pueblo puertorriqueño quiere ser parte.
El problema financiero de la Universidad de
Puerto Rico es un problema economico nacional. Cuando se le aprieta el bolsillo
a Uncle Sam, el amo y señor de nuestra colonia y dueño de la gallinita de oro,
nosotros en Puerto Rico somos afectados. Eso hasta un ciego lo ve,
desafortunadamente como he dicho anteriormente, Puerto Rico es el pais de los
ciegos. Coño despierta Boricua!
February 9, 2020 - Hundreds of students from the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, walked out of their classes February 9 to oppose Governor Jim Gibbons's proposed budget cuts. In January, Gibbons asked the Nevada System of Higher Education to create a budget with a 10 percent cut--a result of a projected $881 million budget shortfall. (Gibbons had earlier asked NSHE to prepare for 6 and 8 percent cuts.) Chancellor Dan Klaich, speaking on behalf of the NSHE and the Board of Regents, argued that the $110 million cut could put the higher education system into financial exigency, a move that everyone is feverishly working to avoid, he said. Other students from the University of Nevada, Reno and surrounding community colleges have already begun setting up forums, petitions, Facebook groups and other protests demanding a stop to the cuts.
May 22, 2010 - Ten of thousands of New Jerseyans rallied against Gov. Chris Christie's proposed budget cuts today in one of the largest protests ever in the state. They gathered near the Statehouse to send the governor a message that his priorities are "out of whack" and to urge him to reconsider his proposed cuts in school aid and other programs they consider vital. New Jersey State Police estimated between 30,000 and 35,000 people attended the rally, spokesman Sgt. Stephen Jones said. There were no arrests, and no problems were reported, he said.
February 11, 2020 - On February 11 students blasted music near Malcom X Plaza in San Francisco to bring "amiable attention to the ongoing demonstrations against fee increases and cut classes" for the California State University system. On Jan. 28, SF State President Robert Corrigan announced another 10 percent increase for the fall 2010 semester. Chants included "They say cut backs, we say f**k that!" and "Who's university? Our university!" "Can you guys afford a 10 percent increase?" Kendall Nevarez said, as reported in the Golden Gate [X] Press. "This is our way of saying 'funk the cuts,'" she said.
March 4, 2010 - Today, in New York and other states across the nation, students, teachers, faculty and workers have been protesting, striking, walking out of classes and staging sit-ins and teach-ins. They are protesting budget cuts, tuition hikes, compensation reductions, layoffs and privatizations affecting public K-12 schools and universities. This afternoon, I'll be heading to Gov. David Paterson's office in Manhattan, where our local protest will be held.
March 4, 2010 - More than 100 University of Central Florida students and others who want state lawmakers to keep the budget ax away from higher education joined in a peaceful noontime rally on the Orlando campus Thursday afternoon. Some carried signs reading, "Education First," "Fund Education Not War" and "Don't Cut Me!" "I'm here mostly because I love my school," said Dylan Froman, 21, a civil engineering major braving the brisk winds outside the administration building to motivate other students to speak out. Froman said the five academic programs UCF eliminated or suspended recently to cut costs affected more than 1,000 students. Future cuts could affect more than the students involved, he said. Cutting programs "undermines the diversity of the university," he said.
February 3, 2010 - An estimated 120 students in a 600-person crowd gathered outside the Michigan House of Representatives on February 3 as Governor Jennifer Granholm gave her State of the State address. The students rallied to bring the Michigan Promise Scholarship, a $4,000 scholarship promised to nearly 100,000 high achieving Michigan students, back to life. Michigan Promise Scholarships were eliminated in 2009. Later that night Gov. Granholm said she intended to revive the scholarship--but her just-released 2011 budget does not restore funding, instead offering students an income tax credit. Thirteen universities in Michigan have planned a rally for higher education on March 25. "Our main objective is to send a message to legislators that higher education should be a higher priority," said Student Senate Parliamentarian Michael Sullivan in The Valley Vanguard.
February 4, 2010 - More than 500 students and faculty staged a walk-out February 4 at Eastern Washington University to protest budget cuts and tuition increases. At Glenn Terrell Friendship Mall--a popular student plaza at Washington State University in Pullman-- another 150 students held a similar protest. On top of last year's $13 million in cuts, this year's proposals include another $3 million cut from EWU operations, and $8 to $10 million from financial aid. Lastly, the legislature has considered another 14 percent tuition hike. Tuition and fees at EWU increased from $3,927 a year in 2005 to $5,445 a year in 2010.
February 10, 2010 - Students and faculty at the University of Texas at Austin are organizing the Stop the Cuts Coalition, a group "organizing against the budget cuts and tuition hikes at the University." As of February 10, the group has planned a rally for March 4. In January, Governor Rick Perry asked state agencies to propose budgets for a 5 percent reduction. President William Power Jr. responded with a recommendation from the Tuition Policy Advisory Committee--a 3.95 percent increase in tuition over the next two years or $240 each semester.
