On March 16, Oakland must tell our elected leaders:
The State Will Not Close Our Schools!
City Council Hearing on School Closures
Tuesday, March 16 Rally at 5PM, Hearing Begins at 6:00 p.m.
Join the parents, teachers, union members, church members, elected officials and concerned citizens of the Coalition Against School Closures as we rally and speak before the City Council during their debate of a resolution against closing five Oakland schools educating 1001 of our most precious youth. Thus far, the voice of outraged citizens has led some Sacramento (and even Washington) politicians to take notice of the ongoing injustice of school closures. Now, we must amplify our demands: elected leaders must do everything in their power to prevent school closures and protect the basic civil rights of public education, due process, and representative government.
Come Out! Bring Signs and Friends!!! For more information contact the Coalition at 562-0579 (ask for Anne) or 638-7005 (ask for Tanya) or email SaveOaklandFive@aol.com. We encourage organizations to contact us and endorse the Coalition.
