*Public Meeting: Fight Back!*
*Thurs. 7/9 - 6 PM
Parker Hill Library - 1497 Tremont St.
To Roxbury Crossing: Orange Line, #15, 19, 22, 23, 25, 28, 42, 44, 45, 66

No Fare Hikes! No Service Cuts!*

The MBTA wants to raise the fares and cut service in the fall to pay for its
supposed “budget crisis”. Over 30% of the MBTA annual budget goes solely to
“debt servicing”. This is a process that turns billions in tax dollars into
profits for the criminal banks. T Riders should not have to pay more for
less, while the banks are not only bailed out, but continue to profit hand
over fist at our expense.

Join us for a community meeting to get involved and discuss what we can do
to organize our communities to fight back!

Visit www.pslweb.org/MBTA <http://www.pslweb.org/mbta> to sign the petition
now and send a letter of protest to the MBTA Board of Directors, Mayor
Menino and Governor Patrick!

*Fund Boston Schools Now!*
featuring Sandra McIntosh, organizer with Work 4 Quality, Fight 4 Equity and
member of the Coalition for Equal, Quality Education (CEQE)*

Billions of tax dollars are spent on the occupations of Iraq, Afghanistan,
Palestine, and Haiti, while billions more go towards prisons and the police.
Year after year, however, funding for education is continually slashed. In
Boston, the city wants to eliminate bus transportation, layoff hundreds of
faculty and close dozens of schools. The youth of this city need money for
education, not for occupation and incarceration!

Come hear a report on the community's successful resistance to the city's
racist “5 zone” redistricting proposal and get involved in the continued
fight for equal, quality education.

*Hosted by: The Party for Socialism and Liberation (PSL)
