Here's a quick run-down of the events that Cecile, Ben, and I promoted on WRUV this afternoon:

* Monday (Tomorrow!): 5 pm Save Our State vigil against state budget cuts and layoffs, 108 Cherry Street (near Church). 6:30 pm Students Stand Up organizing meeting, MLK Lounge, Billings.

* Tuesday: 7 pm Community forum with Sit-down Strikers from Chicago's Republic Windows and Doors, North Lounge, Billings. (They sat down so we can stand up!)
