University administrators have fought them every step of the way, and grad students are now in the fourth week of a strike.

You can do your bit to support the strikers by signing this letter, whose authors include Judith Butler, Frederic Jameson, and Slavoj Zizek, among other intellectual luminaries. You can also consult the GSOC website, or, for some quick background on the issues, this handy Village Voice piece.

Up with nerds! Woo!
