U.S.A.: "National Day of Action to Defend Education"

As a follow-up to the day of action on March 4th which saw hundreds of thousands take to the streets in protest against budget cuts and the increasing privatization and marketization of public education, people across the country are now preparing for another huge day of action on Oct.7th.

Details to be announced in the coming days and weeks.

So far there is this group and an event page on facebook.
