“I want to be clear,” said Tom Mayer, a CU-Boulder sociology professor. “This is a political fight with academic camoflage. “I believe the people who voted (to dismiss Churchill) are the same people who would have voted against Socrates, Galilleo … and anyone else wth an unpopular point of view.”
Lane said the only surprise of the afternoon was Regent Cindy Carlisle’s lone dissenting vote against the motion to fire Churchill.

Professor Julia Curry of San Jose State University, and NACCS are asking folks to join in supporting and encouraging the young courageous students who have been fasting throughout the state to bring attention to the California Dream Act –SB 65 and to the federal Dream Act–which would enable them to continue their education, practice their professions, and eventually gain legal status in the United States.
Through this effort, students urge US Senators and the US Representatives to support the Development, Relief and Education for Alien Minors (DREAM) Act. This act would enable and motivate more than 60,000 students who graduate each year to attend an institution of higher education and utilize their degrees once graduated. If the DREAM Act becomes enacted, undocumented students who entered the US as minors will have the opportunity to a documented status upon maintaining good moral character and completing a college degree or service in the US military.
SF bay area students began fasting Monday morning, July 2 in front of Congresswoman Zoe Lofgren’s office Monday, July 2 through Thursday, July 5th. The Southern California fasters arrived Wednesday night at 10 p.m. and fasted with our students on Thursday until closure at noon. From there the Caravan continued on to San Francisco where they camped in front of Nancy Pelosi’s office through Monday, July 9th.
Supporters and press conference speakers included Prof. Curry, Mark Silverman from the National Immigration Law Center, representatives from SIREN, Richard Hobbs, representatives from CHIRLA, SAHE, Hermandad and local immigrant students.
California SB 65 was presented on July 3rd so it is imperative that we act now. Please fax letters of support directly to Senator Cedillo at 916-327-8817.
Congresswoman Zoe Lofgren
