Defend the Lakeview Sit-in for Public Education!!!
Public education in Oakland is under attack. Literally. On Monday, the 18th, Oakland Unified School District (OUSD) police and OPD threatened the parent and teacher led sit-in at Lakeview Elementary. We re-opened the school they shut down. Now we need a mass mobilization to defend the re-opening. Instead of keeping elementary schools open, the OUSD claims they’re broke – yet 6 million dollars goes to paying the state debt each year! Yet another example of how schools are run by people who think like capitalists!
Mobilize: Saturday, June 23rd, Noon @ Oscar Grant Plaza (14th and Broadway)!
March to the Lakeview Sit-In (746 Grand Ave.)!
Daily Rallies @ Lakeview Elementary at 5P!
Also in case of a police raid, rally the next day in front of Lakeview at 5P.
