Occupy CU Picnic on Low Plaza

If you were wondering what the commotion is on Low Plaza right now, it’s the Occupy CU Student Worker Picnic.  Today is the National Day of Action for Education and workers, students, professors, and community members are encouraged to voice concerns over the state of education.  Free pizza, bagels, and potluck are advertised for protestors.  At 1 pm the group will be heading to Brooklyn to join other student protestors.  Tipsters report drum banging and bell jingling.
