2012 May Day Student Strike

On May 1st students from the Grant Student Union staged a Student Strike in solidarity with High School students around the nation going on strike as a part of the larger May Day events, aganist Budget Cuts and in solidarity with Quebec Students. A community picketline was held at PPS Headquarters, over 100 students joined the strike and the unpermitted march around downtown that closed Lincoln High School and got the attention of the Mayor and superintendent! Day after the city announced they  “found money” to reverse the major budget cuts. Success!
