"March for Student & Worker Rights," #UMainefuture rally
HASHTAG ENGAGEMENT | This afternoon, STUDENTS FOR #USMFUTURE will host a solidarity march through downtown Portland, an opportunity for anyone in Southern Maine to show their support for the students, staff, and faculty at USM who have recently been heavily affected by last month’s announced program cuts and faculty layoffs. (See Nick Schroeder’s update on page 4.) All participants will march to “ensure human rights to education, healthcare, housing, food and a healthy environment.” Starts with a noon rally in Monument Square; professors who cannot attend are urged to hold midday classes in Congress Square Park, along the march route.
