Who: We are calling for all groups in Portland to support a student
led, student organized student general strike. We need all people from
all communites because we feel that all people have been affected by
the gutting of our budgets and we need them to say "NO MORE".
Why: We are demanding that students no longer be treated as 2nd class
citizens. We feel that the legislation of this state has not taken us
seriously in our demands to be given funding so that our education can
succeed. We feel that our options are being taken from us. We have tryed
to lobby, we have sent letters, we have gone to the capitol building
and asked that they give us funding. Nothing has worked. We call this
general strike of students to show people how much is dependant on funding
of our social services.
Please take these demands seriously. Forward this message to as many
people as you know so that we can have as big an impact as possible.
Thank you for your support.
