Budget Cuts, The Time To Act Is Now!
What can be done in the face of the attacks on education and other public sector workers? The fight today to mobilize the labor movement and working people is key and this has not yet happened in California within the trade unions despite the escalating attacks. AgainstCuts is an effort to begin to organize those who are ready to fight back. We played an important role in organizing the 12,000-person rally in San Francisco on March 4, 2009 along with several teachers unions. We have developed basic tools – leaflets, organizer’s packets and teach-in materials – that ordinary people can use to organize at their, schools, workplaces, churches or wherever they are. Join us to discuss how we can build a real fight back against the destruction of public education.
