November 5 at Hostos College, PIST got to meet and greet education activists from the Bronx and beyond in an exciting workshop within the “People’s Assembly”. We thank the South Bronx Community Congress and other sponsors for inviting us.
November 7, we stopped briefly at a ‘General Assembly’ on the steps of Tweed after school. A large crowd of students, parents, and advocates voiced their outrage at the direction of public education under mayoral control and the undemocratic Panel for Education Policy. Thank you Teachers Unite for inviting us first among others. Meetings to continue this line of organizing will be held each Sunday at 12 at Zuccotti Park, Broadway and Liberty, Manhattan.
