SDS Denver furthers ‘Chop from the Top!’ campaign, marches on President Davidson By Solveig Swain, Fight Back Ne-

On November 1, the Students for a Democratic Society (SDS) Denver gathered to protest the budget mismanagement by the administration of the Metropolitan State University of Denver. The event began with a speak-out outside the campus library before the student activists marched on MSU President Janine Davidson’s office for a second round of speakers. Upon arrival, students voiced their demands for a rectification of work-study programs, better treatment of faculty, and a budget prioritizing education. The main demand voiced by students throughout the event was for MSU to implement a tuition freeze. MSU administration has complained that due to falling enrollment over previous years, they had no choice but to raise tuition for incoming students.
