Stop the cut to student metrocards!
Students are the lifeblood of public schools and have the power to shut down not only their own schools but the entire city. Join with us as we rally on Friday to continue building momentum to stop the Metrocard cut and school closures. Come out and fight, not because one more demonstration will suffice to stop the cuts, but because each rally and march can be an essential part of building a broader, escalated and sustained fight against all of the cuts to public education and transit!

On March 4th, over 1,600 students, teachers and community members protested against budget cuts, school closures, the cancellation of the student Metrocard and MTA cutbacks in New York City.1 Tens of thousands protested in California, and thousands more protested in dozens of cities around the country. Come to an organizing meeting on Sunday, March 14th at 1 pm to discuss how we can build on the success of March 4th and continue the struggle to defend public education.
