March 1st Day of Action: March and Rally

Join with Occupy Seattle Public Education, Parents Across America and Social Equality Educators for a march and rally culminating at the headquarters of the Gates Foundation, an organization that represents the push towards school privatization and high-stakes testing. We will be bringing a simple message:

We refuse to pay for the crisis created by the 1%.

We refuse to accept the dismantling of our schools and universities, while the banks and corporations make record profits.

We refuse to accept educational re-segregation, massive tuition increases, outrageous student debt, and increasing privatization and corporatization of our public schools.

They got bailed out and we got sold out.

Through nationally coordinated mass actions we can and will turn back the tide of austerity.

Gather for the rally at the Westlake Plaza at 2:45 PM

March to the Gates Foundation at 3:30 PM.

    Shouldn’t we just quit & join the star struck toadies of LEV, DFER, SFC, CRPE, PFL … outside Gate$-Ville.

    Why, man, he doth bestride the narrow world
    Like a Colossus, and we petty men
    Walk under his huge legs and peep about
    To find ourselves dishonourable graves.
