Subject: March 4: National Day of Action to Defend Public Education

Demonstration tomorrow to protest Patterson’s proposed budget cuts and to defend public education, among other things.  Part of a National Day of Action to Defend Public Education, which comes out of a lot of protest throughout the past several months in California.  This demonstration is endorsed by the Transit Workers Union (under new reformist leadership), the Professional Staff Caucus (CUNY), and various reform groups within the Teachers’ Union.  Demonstration is at 4, but will definitely be going on after work.



Please forward widely
