    Default FURLOUGH FEST @ CSUF

    FURLOUGH FEST-- October 20, 21 and 22

    12PM @ Becker Amphitheater (Near the TSU), Cal State Fullerton
    _______________________

    JUST IN TIME for this year's furloughs, FURLOUGH FEST! In resistance to the statewide CSU budget cuts - and in solidarity with all other universities affected by budget cuts - CSUF will inadvertently host 3 days of fun, creativity, and communal resistance to corporatized education. REGARDLESS of your status - whether you are a current student at CSUF or any university at all, whether you are aware of the current budget crisis in california - this is the moment to stand in support of youth and energy which are necessarily opposed to the bleached-clean efficient machines of oppression.

    ALL ARE WELCOME TO PARTICIPATE! You DON'T have to run anything by anyone, JUST SHOW UP and do your thing. Want to play music? Bring your gear. Want to hold a workshop? Write it on the schedule of events to be provided at the Becker Amphitheater meeting point during Furlough Fest. Want to do anything else? Well, no one told you that you couldn't, so....go ahead. Keep in mind that this is an OCCUPATION of the campus, so if you want to camp with the rest of us then bring something to sleep in or make a friend and sleep in their tent. See you all there!!!!!!!

    YOU DECIDE YOUR OWN LEVEL OF INVOLVEMENT! Want to see something happen? Then make it happen!

    _______________________

    isn't exactly your responsibility to say anything about that, so allow your sense of pressure regarding what to say relieved. feel's kind of nice huh?

    and as far as what's so fantastic about patrick's poetry party - well, i guess you'd have to meet patrick to know why it will be fantastic.

    quite relieved, thank you. it wasnt much pressure to begin with though, i just wanted to point out the fact that pleasure might not be the most effective answer to resisting against budget cuts. and dont get me wrong, im all for this. playing hide & seek while listening to dub-step and getting DIY lessons sounds great. not to mention the irony of camping on campus. i just have one more question:

    what if i brought a gang of midgets with me to furlough fest and had them talk shit to attendees passing by saying shit like "Arnold Shwarzenegger is a piece of shit" and "what the fuck do you know about budget cuts you slut", would this be ok?

    also, can u tell Patrick I said fuck you. thanks.
