I’ve been preoccupied with other stuff today, so haven’t had the chance to liveblog this, but a number of students, faculty, and staff are striking today and tomorrow at Indiana University.

The group aren’t aiming to shut the university down, but they have reportedly reduced attendance considerably, and are staging teach-ins, marches and other events on both a campuswide and class-by-class basis. They’re calling for a reduction in tuition in fees, an end to privatization and outsourcing, salary hikes, an increase in African American enrollment, and repeal of two laws targeting undocumented immigrants. (Background on the strike here and here.)

Breaking news on the strike can be found at the #IUonstrike Twitter hashtags and from the @IUonstrike account. There’s a student newspaper story on a morning march here, and a Tumblr here.

More later.
