1. Stop the Closing of Six Boston Public Schools! Protest Wednesday,
2. Socialist Analysis of the Mid-Term Elections: Meeting Thursday, November
*1. Save Our Schools! Rally to Defend Public Education! Wednesday, November
The unelected Boston School Committee will be meeting on *Wednesday,
November 3rd*. They intend to decide to close six Boston public schools.
Hundreds of folks will be there to say, united: "Save Our Schools!" This is
only the tip of the iceberg in a corporate agenda for education to
privatize, union-bust, re-segregate and destroy education as we know it. *Be
at English High in Jamaica Plain at 144 McBride Street starting around 5pm*.
Take the Orange Line to Green Street T. This protest is organized by the
Coalition for Equal Quality Education.
The last School Committee meeting saw a powerful uprising of 600 angry
students, parents, teachers, staff and community members. We need to broaden
and strengthen this movement, and we can stop these school closings!
Socialist Alternative will be distributing our new statement and our new
pamphlet about this struggle locally, nationally, and internationally.
2. Socialist Alternative Branch Meeting: Election Analysis on Thursday,
7pm at UMass-Boston's Wheatley Building 4th Floor Lounge*
Is the country shifting to the right? Where is the change we were promised?
What does the right-wing Tea Party represent? What is a good strategy for
independent politics? Where is this country headed?
Come bring your answers to these questions in a discussion that will be
kicked off by Socialist Alternative on the evening of Thursday, November 4th
at UMass-Boston's Wheatley Building 4th Floor Lounge beginning at 7pm. The
discussion will be followed with some organizational points, mostly focused
on the campaign to stop the school closings.
