Title: Chicago Teachers' Strike! Meeting This Week!
START DATE: Wednesday September 12
TIME: 7:00 PM - 8:30 PM
Location Details:
Dwinelle 263, UC-Berkeley campus
Event Type: Teach-In
This morning morning 26,000 Chicago Teachers Union members will walk picket lines in an incredibly inspiring struggle to defend public education. The Berkeley ISO will be tabling tomorrow at 2PM in Sproul Plaza to raise awareness and strike funds for what could be a long, hard battle. Please stop by and see us; we'll be selling CTU Solidarity shirts and the latest Socialist Worker featuring the CTU. We will also be tabling at 5 on Wednesday before our meeting, where we'll discuss the strike in the context of the larger fight against the corporate attack on public education that is being led in many places - like Chicago and California - by the Democratic Party. We hope to see you there!
