STUDENTS AGAINST UNFAIRNESS IN COLLEGE
Intervention in Union square that we did is below: (I will send the advertisement that we did for the project)
Maintaining an outdoor protest for 100,000 people presents various logistical challenges.
10 DAY NO MORE TUITION
INCREASE PROTEST PLAN
This protest that will take place in Union Square in New York city will be a 10 day protest and we are expecting 100,000 people to join us! Come join the protest to help prevent tuition
Union square is a common hang out for college
students of New York city and very close to both NYU, New York Film Academy, and The New School campuses therefore making it a great common ground and meeting spot for this occasion.
To link the protest and occupation of Union Square to Education we are turning Union Square into our own campus and anyone is welcome. Each day different classes will be held all day long. (See poster for details) We will be addressing as many practices commonly studied as possible. We will also use the skills of participating students to our advantage.
NYU medical students will provide around the clock medical assistance if necessary, however we are keeping this a peaceful protest. The Film Academy students will be documenting the entire protest and partnering with Parsons, New School and NYU students for communicating our protest to the world. Also photography students and those who are interested are encouraged to document the entire protest aswel. We would also love all bloggers to post about this even and also follow up by documenting the event! Instagram, twitter and facebook will also be key in communicating our message.
Where to get WIFI?
Starbucks is an essential for any student but now it is going to be more essential than ever. Since Union Square will be our home and campus for 10 days we will rely heavily on the WIFI and heat of the THREE Starbucks that are in Union Square.
Where to get away from the cold?
We will have Outdoor Gas heaters and tents provided by our bake sale fundraising and donations. Also NYU dorms around (map will be provided) and New School dorms around will be providing shelter for those who can not find room anywhere in Union Square to get away from the cold or get on Wifi.
What about FOOD?
The restaurants around will also be supporting the cause and giving student discounts and student meals for 5/10/15 Dollars throughout the event… meals will be announced prior to the protest. Consider it our restaurant week.
Seamless.com is also giving us a special offer on delivery. We will have a tent located for delivery to the event.
Hashtag: Students Against Unfairness in College
The movement was formed by students opposed to the fact that the high price of college tuition
. Specifically, it disagrees with the continual increases in tuition
and other fees imposed by universities
. The SAUCE movement supports poor students as well but its main concern is that continually increasing tuition
costs make college
unaffordable for students who cannot qualify for financial aid but whose families are not wealthy enough to pay for college
without more help than is currently available to them.
Basic Materials to Support the Initiative
Maintaining an outdoor protest for 100,000 people presents various logistical challenges. First, New York City is currently experiencing a cold period. Naturally, maintaining warmth is a critical factor required for both comfort and safety. Dressing for the weather requires wearing several layers because that is more effective than relying on a single heavy coat. Hats and gloves are essential. Water and food are also critical because it would be impossible to maintain a 10-day presence without them. The event requires sleeping bags, sleeping mats, and tents to protect participants from the elements.
Materials Necessary for 10 Classes
Day One Class ??" Drawing Day: The recommended materials include pencils, pencil sharpeners, and sketch pads.
Day Two Class ??" Poetry Day: The recommended materials include Norton’s Anthology of Poetry and a notebook.
Day Three Class ??" Yoga Day: No additional materials are required because participants already have their sleeping mats that can double as yoga mats.
Day Four Class ??" Jogging Day: The recommended materials include running shoes, a pair of sweatpants and sweatshirt that can be worn instead of the warm layers and then removed after they become wet after the class.
Day Five Class ??" Music Day: No additional materials are required for this class besides those recommended for other classes, such as pencils and notebooks.
Day Six Class ??" Silent Up: The only recommended materials are a book that you have always been meaning to read but have never had a chance.
Day Seven Class ??" History: The only materials recommended are a copy of Howard Zinn’s A People’s History of the United States.
Day Eight ??" Writing Day: No additional materials are recommended because participants already have pencils and notebooks for other classes.
Day Nine ??" Reading Day: No additional materials are recommended because participants already have a copy of a book they have always wanted to read.
Day Ten ??" Open Mind Day: No additional materials are recommended. Participants are encouraged to trade their books recommended for Days Six and Nine with other participants whose books they would never have chosen to read and would never have read otherwise.
