A Day of Action

Students for Justice at De Anza will not be participating in any Civil Disobedience or Direct Action. We do not disparage nor encourage individuals who, understanding the potential legal consequences, choose to participate in such actions. We offer our support to those individuals to ensure the protection of their civil rights. Drop by the SFJ table for more info...

However, several other groups around the Bay Area have called for Direct Actions to take place on Friday evening. In addition to Powell's visit, there is a bit of history around November 11th as a day of resistance.
