The Balance of Power has Already Changed; Response to Curtis Rumrill

  • justified (these are rent burdened workers, struggling to survive);
  • unquestionably serious (the niceties of whether it’s well prepared haven’t made an impact in the public narrative);
  • a strike which is spreading (expansion of solidarity actions and independent strikes / strike preparation on other UC campuses are a foregone conclusion).
  • Was any meaningful attention being paid to rent burden of UC grads prior to the wildcat?
  • Was UC admin doing anything beyond endless, meaningless palaver about “addressing the housing problem”?
  • Was there any effective challenge to the status quo of executive unilateralism?
  • Were power relations challenged?
