The group is called the UC Movement for Efficient Privatization. Its Web site features some of its recent activities, such as a training session for students on "how to cross picket lines without thinking twice about the ethical, political, or moral consequences of their actions." And of course because everyone still talks about the Mark Yudof interview with The New York Times in which he quipped that he doesn't have Air Force One, the students have the answer: a fund-raising campaign to "Help Buy Mark Yudof a Plane."
