writings of campus occupy & anti-privatization movements, fall 2011


This fall was a season of unrest on campuses throughout California.  In opposition to proposed tuition hikes and pension raids and in solidarity with the occupy movement, students, teachers, and workers at schools and universities across the state initiated a wave of strikes and occupations.  These demonstrators stalled what had seemed an inexorable process of university privatization.

We’ve collected and annotated a few dozen essays that emerged out of these campus uprisings — nearly all were written by participants in recent actions.  The essays attempt to describe and to make sense of this latest sequence of student protest; some locate campus actions within various contexts and histories of struggle, while others pose critical questions to fellow organizers or propose possible futures for the movement.  

We’ve tried to be broadly inclusive in collecting these materials; if there’s an essay that we’ve missed, please feel free to let us know, at editors@reclamationsjournal.org.

  1. With havin so much written content do you ever run into
    any problems of plagorism or copyright infringement?
    My site has a lot of completely unique content I’ve either written myself or outsourced but it
    looks like a lot of it is popping it up all over the web
    without my authorization. Do you know any solutions
    to help prevent content from being stolen? I’d definitely appreciate it.

  2. Hello! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any
    issues with hackers? My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up
    losing months of hard work due to no back up. Do you have any methods to stop hackers?
