On January 20th and May 1st, we are calling for a nationwide student strike and protest against the rise of inequality, fascism, and oppression in our presidential administration and our society. We will not attend school, and we will stage walkouts and fill the streets! We cannot allow our future to destroyed by a government that doesn’t care about the issues we face, we cannot allow open white nationalists and neo-nazis run for, or hold office. We cannot allow police to be militarized and brutal while schools are underfunded and can’t afford functioning equipment. As the safety and quality of our education system rapidly decreases, students voices are ignored and laughed at. We are the next voice of this nation, we will be taken seriously.

Demands: 1. Disarm campus cops and SROs and start holding police accountable for their crimes and actions of brutality. 2. Take serious steps to end the drastic rise in school shootings and gun violence on our campus’s (Ex. Focus on the mental well being of all students, restrict gun sales to adults over the age of 21, require rigorous background checks.) 3. Quality and free education for all (Ex. increased funding for school districts, starting with low income areas. Increased wages for teachers. Free tuition in public colleges and free food in all schools). 4. Abolish common core. End the use of our outdated school system and, and the "one size fits most" method of teaching, educate based on the students needs and interests along with adding more focus on mental heath.
If these demand are not met by May 1st, 2019; Students across the nation will strike daily and engage in civil disobedience (protests, walkout) until we get the freedom and equality we deserve
