As Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker's egregious $300 million budget cut to the University of Wisconsin (UW) system is debated in the state legislature, members of Progressive Students of Milwaukee, Youth Empowered in the Struggle and the UW Milwaukee Resists Cuts Coalition are staging a sit-in at UW-Milwaukee Chancellor Mark Mone's office after numerous attempts to try to meet with him.
The students are demanding that the chancellor meet with them and concede to their demands that he publicly and unequivocally oppose the proposed budget as harmful, unnecessary and political in nature, as well as cut administrative positions and salaries before cutting academics and student services and before laying off faculty and staff. The students refuse to leave until their voices are heard!
Call Chancellor Mone's office and demand that he meet with UWM students and oppose the cuts!

Students for a Democratic Society Stands in Solidarity with Baltimore Protesters, Against Police Brutality
Students for a Democratic Society stands in solidarity with the people’s uprising in Baltimore as they demand justice for Freddie Gray. SDS stands against police repression and militarization, particularly in its manifestations as brutality, racial profiling, and enforcement of white supremacy. The uprising in Baltimore highlights the extreme emergency situation of oppressed nationalities in the United States and demonstrates the extreme measures to which people living in Baltimore will bravely go to take back their streets, in a sustained series of protests that have yet to cease.

Students for a Democratic Society and its affiliates stand in solidarity with political prisoner Mumia Abu Jamal, who is the victim of attempted execution through medical neglect and malpractice. An acclaimed activist, author, and revolutionary journalist; Mumia went into diabetic shock on March 30, with no past history of diabetes. Hospitalized for two days, Mumia was then transferred back to the prison that failed to diagnose his illness. With a dangerously inadequate diet and health that deteriorates each day, Mumia’s well-being is being deliberately sabotaged. As the state’s two past execution attempts were foiled by international pressure, SDS recognizes this medical mistreatment as another attempt on Mumia’s life.
