RAIN,SLEET OR SNOW
******************

BACKGROUND:
On 12/16/09, a proposal was passed by the The Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) Board 12-0 in favor of serious budget cuts taking place next year. Among the most critical effects of these budget cuts is the discontinuation of a program which provides free MetroCards for more than 500,000 city students

There is a CALL FOR A 2:00pm WALKOUT FROM SCHOOL ON THIS SAME DAY SO STUDENTS CAN GET DOWN TO THE HEADQUARTERS BY 3:30

FIGHT BACK!

    The protest today was good, but everyone at the end saw the bureaucrats urge us to go back inside. They were right that if we stormed the barricades we would have risked arrest, but they called on us all to go home without announcing another demonstration — even when yelled at to do so.

    We need to continue the struggle! We need more demonstrations, more escalation! We need to walk out and strike to stop the cuts, and occupy closing high schools!
