…sh** is real. Whoever said the kids don’t care? More than 26,000 students in 52 school districts in the LA USD walked out today to protest the anti-immigration bill HR 4437. This from JC:
Today I was subbing at Jefferson High and the school adminstrators there were much more lax with the students walking out. They let many of them walk out and locked the door on some of them. However, they may be punished upon their return to school tomorrow.
I just watched the channel 2 news and they said 26,000 students walked out and that every middle school and high school in LAUSD is going to be on lockdown tomorrow.
And for the kicker:
I heard from my housemate that all the students from different schools met downtown and some of them actually managed to block the freeway!! I was attempting to drive through downtown this afternoon and saw some people protesting and a lot of cops. I heard that many students are communicating through flyering and through my space.
Did you hear that? Communicating through flyering and through My Space! I love the web 2.o and all its potential for resistance.
