[SDCPJ] please co-sign Open Letter to Save the Che Cafe

 
 
please forward this widely,
 
 
Dear Friend,
 
I never thought I'd see this in the San Diego Union-Tribune"First the San Diego Opera was threatened, then the Ken Cinema almost went dark, and now another local arts institution is danger of shutting down." ("UCSD's Ché Cafe in danger of closing", 5/28/14). But the Che Cafe truly has become that kind of important community treasure over these past 34 years it has operated.
 
We are writing you to ask you to co-sign the attached Open Letter and to help circulate it to other progressive individuals and community organizations (activists, churches, unions) for their signatures this week. We ask that you print out and sign and scan and email your signed copy to support@checafe.ucsd.edu and mkroopkin@juno.com by Thursday, July 31, 2014. We ask that organizations consider the matter of co-signing at your next meeting.
 
We will compile the list of signatures and present the Open Letter to the UCSD administration and the UC Regents.
 
For more background information on the situation, here is a link to the recent press release:
 
Also attached is an updated compilation of press reports and an analytical statement on the broader context.
 
 
We also need to emphasize the importance of the fund raising campaign. A fund raising campaign has been launched and the Che Café is requesting donations to cover legal expenses, improvements and maintenance to the building which the university has failed to provide, and mitigation of lost income from disruption of the concert schedule. Supporters of the Che can contribute to these expenses in any of these ways:
·  Attend the Che Café during a scheduled concert
·  By mail at:
CHE Café
9500 Gilman Drive M/C 0323
La Jolla, CA 92093-0323
 
 
Respectfully yours,
 
Monty Reed Kroopkin
for the Che Cafe Support Network
