National Day of Action to Defend Education!
Thursday, March 4th
Endless Budget Cuts and Tuition Hikes. 19 NYC public schools closing. Free student Metrocards being phased out alongside train lines and booth employees. Segregation in schools. NYPD jailing 12-year olds. Massive student debt. Less financial aid. Teachers’ Unions under attack… Education is in CRISIS.
TIME TO SAY ENOUGH IS ENOUGH! SAVE OUR SCHOOLS!
NYC-wide day of action:
Rally at 4 pm at Gov. Paterson’s office (633 Third Ave. @ 41st St.),
Then March to MTA Hearings at Fashion Institute of Technology (7th Ave. @ 27th St.)
Socialist Worker coverage:
SocialistWorker.org is planning to blog live throughout the day with reports from the protests taking place in California and around the country during the March 4 Day of Action. You can go to the SocialistWorker.org home page (http://SocialistWorker.org) to follow our coverage.
We’re also hoping to broadcast a live video stream of the regional rally in San Francisco, beginning at 5 p.m. (PST, 8 p.m. EST and 7 p.m. CST). (Please note that we’ve never done this before, and technical difficulties are certainly possible. Wish us luck!)
