***THIS IS A CALL TO ACTION**** for students of all Universities, Community Colleges, High Schools, Middle Schools past, present, and future to stand up for free public education and shut down the racist, classist, corporate, militarized police state. The same people benefiting from racial oppression are the same people benefiting from education debts. The state of California is failing its people by investing in police and prisons instead of public education. It's time to reject this assault on our communities and stand together for education and the end of police violence.
~~MARCH 2-4th: SHUT IT DOWN~~ host direct actions, workshops, teach-ins, (the possibilities are endless!!)
~~MARCH 5th: STRIKE~~ no work no school, show up and stop the cycle -- strikes work, and big gains have recently been made for public education in Quebec, Germany, and Chile.
Stand with your California's students to demand a free, non-oppressive, non-corporate education. We call upon your collective voices and bodies to end this state-sponsored violence against black and brown individuals, end this war against low-income communities, shut down the school-to-prison pipeline, and prioritize PEOPLE OVER PROFITS! STUDENTS OVER SUITS!
