Defend Public Education! March from Shaw and Blackstone to Fresno State at Shaw and Cedar. A rally will take place at CSUF at 12 Noon. The demands of this march and rally are:
* Increase transparency and equality in CSU’s and UC’s, and accountability of administrators.
* Pass AB 656 - tax oil extraction and use the revenue to supplement public education funding.
* Repeal AB 900 - divest from prisons and invest in solutions - education, health care and mental health care, drug treatment, jobs. . .
* No more corporate bailouts and tax breaks! When class sizes are increasing, educators are being laid off and taxpayers are paying more, everyone must be paying their fair share.
