The Frights were awesome last night!! After the show some guy in a snapback said he liked my dance moves and then we got to meet The Frights’ bass player. We talked about Morrissey and it was so much fun!!
YOU CAN PARTICIPATE IN THIS ACTION FROM ANYWHERE - AS LONG AS YOU HAVE A PHONE!
The first time around, the phone zap tactic was extremely successful!
With your support and solidarity the Ché Café was able to force the
administration of UCSD to begin negotiations with the collective during
This time around, our intentions are not only to
force the administration into serious negotiations, but also to put
pressure on them to place a permanent stay on the eviction notice that
has been issued against the Ché Collective.
Starting at 10 a.m., call Vice Chancellor of student affairs Juan Gonzalez and demand that:
1. UCSD place an immediate stay on eviction proceedings against the Ché Café.
2. Ché Café Collective be included included in upcoming Master Space Agreement negotiations.
VC Gonzalez phone number: (858) 534-4371
Don’t just call once! Keep calling!
Leave messages with his secretary.
Our goal is to overwhelm them - if they sound annoyed, it means that we
are getting under their skin (exactly what we want to do).
In my opinion, the Che Cafe is hands down the best venue in San Diego. UCSD campus administrators are trying to cut their funding and shut it down. Please take 15 seconds to sign the petition and help keep this safe space up and running.
The Che Cafe is a multicultural centre in San Diego, a community space, a d.i.y. venue, a server of vegan food, a safe and sober LGBTQA space, and a not-for-profit collective run by students and community members on the UCSD campus. It fosters critical thinking, diversity, anti-capitalism, and community; acts as a space for learning and sharing; fights oppression through education and a lack of acceptance for oppressive behavior and actions; and is a historical space which has been operating in the community for the past 35 years.
Currently the university is attempting to evict the space. The Che is not only a landmark in the San Diego community, but an example of collective thinking and the sharing of art. To lose the space would be to lose a source of cultural and artistic wealth.
The Che is still alive and being occupied. It has won against the university before through direct action. Save the Che. Save spaces of positive growth. Fight for and foster spaces in your community which make it what it is.
