Seattle Community College teachers have decided to begin teaching classes in support of the Occupy Seattle movement.
The classes will include “The Art of the Protest Sign” and “Filming to Document Human Rights Violations.”
My FOX Spokane reported:
It’s not clear if the professors will instruct the youths on poop bombs, tent rape and violence against cops.
A day after Occupy Seattle moved to the campus, instructors at Seattle Central Community College planned to begin teaching classes in support of the group.
The classes, scheduled to begin at 9 p.m. Sunday, were to be held on the Plaza at SCCC and include such subjects as “Why We Support Occupy,” “Legislative Lobbying,” “The Art of the Protest Sign” and “Filming to Document Human Rights Violations.”
Classes will continue throughout the night.
Karen Strickland, Seattle President of the American Federation of Teachers said in an open letter to Paul Kilpatrick, President of SCCC that the board is in support of SCCC accommodating the request of Occupy Seattle for a number of reasons.
“The students and employees of the SCCD are the 99 percent and are suffering because of the economic inequity that characterizes our society and which has dramatically worsened since the 1970s,” she said.
Occupy Seattle says they adopted a “Good Neighbor Policy” In preparation for the move to SCCC.
They say the policy is includes provisions to ensure that the learning environment will not be interrupted, the Farmers Market will not be disrupted and neighbors will be respected.
Hat Tip Linda
The Occupy Seattle protesters, who just moved on campus this weekend, promised to “refrain from tagging or the defacement of land or structures at SCCC.”
What lovely guests.
