So it’s here — the kickoff to 2011’s Month of Action. I’ve started a Google Map to track what goes on today and throughout the month, and I’ll be updating it over the course of the day. The United States Student Association has actions listed in eleven states, most of which I haven’t had the chance to add yet, while the good folks at Defend Public Education have a lot of info on what’s going on in California.
If you know of something I haven’t put up, post a comment, and be sure to follow #March2 on Twitter for all the latest from around the country.
Update | As of 2:00 pm ET, I’ve got twenty-nine actions in thirteen states (and DC) on the map, with more to come.
Second Update | It’s 7:30 pm in the East now, and there’s all sorts of stuff going on. California had a bunch of actions that haven’t made it onto the map yet, several of which are still going on. There’s been one arrest at Laney College, a community college not far from Berkeley. There’s a sit-in happening at UC Santa Cruz, and a building is under occupation at the University of Wisconsin Milwaukee. (Those occupiers already have a blog, a Facebook page, and a Twitter account, by the way. Nicely done!)
