A major mobilization is coming March 1 – 5, 2012, to put pressure on the Governor and legislature to renew support for public education in California and for raising taxes to restore the state funding that UC, the CSUs, the CCs, and K-12 to meet the needs of our people for high quality, affordable education. There will be a variety of marches, rallies and other activities around the state, peaking with a protest on the Capitol grounds in Sacramento on Monday, March 5th. A key part of the action is a “99-mile March for Public Education & Social Justice,” starting in Oakland/Berkeley on March 1 and going to Sacramento.
If you can, please attend one of the marches, rallies, or other events being planned for March 1. A list is available at Occupy Education CA. Bus and carpool transit to many of these events is also available.
Also, if you can, please join the demonstration at the Capitol on Monday, March 5th. A signup form for bus transit from around the state is available here.
