Contact the Berkeley school board and demand that the suspension of Yvette Felarca and harassment of her students be put on the agenda of Wednesday's board meeting: boardofed@berkeley.net, Superintendent@berkeley.net


Yvette Felarca, a Berkeley middle school teacher, is being persecuted by the school district for her political activities.

After she helped prevent the neo-Nazi rally on the steps of the capitol in Sacramento this summer, and was one of several people who were stabbed by the fascists, terror threats were made against the school if she was not fired. Instead of defending the entire school, including Yvette, the Berkeley Unified School District has since capitulated to the neo-Nazis, docked some of her pay, and suspended her.

Parents of some of her students have reported that their children were removed from class without parental notification, consent, or presence, and were interrogated about Yvette.


Voice your solidarity with Yvette Felarca, and demand that she be reinstated immediately, paid her full wages, and the harassment of her and her students be stopped: boardofed@berkeley.net, Superintendent@berkeley.net


Non-sectarian defense of all anti-fascists!
An injury to one is an injury to all!
