UPDATE: The Che is still fighting to stay! It is currently in the process of fighting an eviction by UCSD and the law firm it hired to kick us out! The Che remains strong and was granted a preliminary injunction for October 31st (an event page will be created when more information is available and we will need as many supporters to attend). If you would like to help us in the meantime, please help us fundraise by donating to our gofundme ( or attend one of our many fundraising events at Che! We are running low on funds and these are vital to keeping us alive. LONG LIVE THE CHE CAFE AND SHAME ON UCSD!"

We hope to gather together a group of former students who worked in any of the  co-ops and collectives on campus, as well as alumni who support the UCSD co-ops and the growth of the co-ops at the campus (whether one worked in one of the co-ops or not). 
Bands for this event are:
Nice World
Array Orchestra
We want to embrace a broad alumni community which understands cooperatives and collectives to include:
The Print Co-op
The Computer Co-op
The Committee for World Democracy - Political Film Series
The Lumumba-Zapata (Third) College General Assembly (1969-72)
The child Daycare Cooperative
The Bike Co-op
Groundwork Books Collective
The Food Co-op
The Recycling Co-op
The Student Cooperative/Student Cooperative Union
The Women's Resource Center collective
The Che Cafe Collective
The General Store Co-op
Alternative Visions Collective
Voz Fronteriza
The Indicator/Crazy Times/North Star/New Indicator Collective and other groups (and we ask people to nominate the groups we need to reach out for)

Please help us to find and invite all these people!

The new group we envision will initially be independent of the official Alumni Association.

We may seek recognition as a sub-group of the official association once we have established ourselves. 

Previous attempts to get recognition first (and access to the association newsletter, etc.) have been unsuccessful.

The time is ripe, and we will just have to take direct action.

Solidarity Forever,
Nicole Morales, Susan Wingfield-Ritter, Arnie Schoenberg and Monty Kroopkin

We are fundraising! Please donate if you can. Anything helps.

We have a potentially long legal battle ahead of us and renovations the campus are unwilling to pay for.

If you are uncomfortable donating online, we do accept donations at events.

JULY 12 AT NOON: Free Workshop: Know Your Rights

As The Che Cafe moves to a legal battle towards the university, UCSD is going to keep a close eye on our actions. This means police, fire marshals, and other university staff checking up on events and possibly talking to attendees. Knowing your rights as a community member is essential for when/if this happens. Join us on Saturday at noon for a free workshop on how to handle situations such as this.

Everyones actions are a direct reflection on the collective, the university will use anything it can and hold it against us in court.

Throughout all of this, we have set up a GoFundMe fundraising campaign to aide is with our legal costs as well as various other projects that will be necessary in this battle.


For more information on the TRO (Temporary Restraining Order) that we were granted on the morning of July 10, please visit the following link:
