Students, Parents Workers:
About 75 folks convened in the Grant High School Library on 4/27. On May 1st we plan to shutdown PPS Headquarters in act of protest aganist the existing budget measures which would see teachers and subsequently educational programs cut. High Schools and Teachers Unions everywhere are going on strike May 1st in solidarity and in celebration of International Workers’ Day. We are not alone is this action. When we rally at 7:30am we will ask PPS workers, visitors and the world to not cross our picketline and to resist a system that would prioritize war and profit over education.
On Sunday a Aesthetic will meet and design Picket Signs and Banners. This is an open event at a students house at 2528 Ne 8th off of Brazee at 3pm. Those who come are encouraged to bring money (5-10 dollars would be great 🙂 ) or supplies (cardboard, brushes, paint, signs, etc.)
For May 1st those using public transportation our Max Meetup times are: 6:25am and 7:05am at the Hollywood Transit Center. We will ride the Max to the Rose Quarter Transit center and march to PPS Headquarters. There will be folks with cars shuttling people/supplies around. Got a Sign/Picket? A car will deliver it from the transit center to the rally point at PPS Headquarters so you don’t have carry it around on the Max.
