Tues, 2/7, UMass Boston, "Protest the Board of Trustees!"

"WE DEMAND A BIGGER VOICE IN OUR FUTURE!"
Tuesday February 7th, 9 AM -- Campus Center Ballroom C
Meet on 1st Floor Campus Center @ 8:30 AM

Who are the Board of Trustees?
The unelected body of 19 corporate executives and lawyers (political appointments by current and past governors) who increase our fees and hand out big salaries to administrators.
Out of the five UMass campuses, only two of the five student trustees have a vote -- yet people with NO experience in education are deciding the future of UMass!

Why are we protesting them?
We demand more democracy at our university! Students, faculty and staff should elect the Board -- or at the very least have greater representation on it!
Last year they raised our fees by $700... and then gave former UMass President Jack Wilson a $550,000 retirement package!

OCCUPY UMASS BOSTON -- EDUCATION AND DEMOCRACY FOR THE 99%, NOT BLOATED SALARIES FOR THE 1%!
