Today's rally at SWC marked the beginning of a new era of activism for SWC students, staff, faculty, and even a few administrators.
The theme was "got classes?" and the message was clear.
With police officers standing by, one student after another took to the open mic, expressing how the class cuts were impacting not just themselves but their families and communities.
As the "free speech hour" drew to a close, participants decided to take their message beyond approved confines and marched to President Raj K. Chopra's office, where police blocked their way.
Student leadership says this rally is just the beginning.
