New York State of Protest

The People’s State of the State address in January called for a fair budget, rather than cutting programs for those most in need; in April, farmworkers marched for rights that most other workers in the state have, including regular days off, overtime, and collective bargaining rights; on April 1, 30,000 health-care workers brought Albany traffic to a standstill responding to Pataki’s proposed $2 billion cuts in health care; 1,500 SUNY and CUNY students, many of whom took three weeks to walk to Albany from their campuses, attended a rally at the Capitol in March to call for a tutition freeze; tens of thousands rallied against cuts in public education at the Empire State Plaza in May.
