PCC: May 1 Student Walkout Against the Trump Agenda

PCC Cascade, 705 N Killingsworth
705 N Killingsworth Street
Portland, OR 97217, US (map)



Schedule: 12:00pm - Walk out of class and rally outside, between the student union and Cascade Hall 1:00pm - March to the yellow line and ride downtown together to join the citywide march at Shemanski Park.

Never has it been more obvious that we cannot allow "business as usual" to continue while workers, immigrants, women, and all poor and oppressed people are under vicious attack by the government's right-wing agenda. A wave of student walkouts across the country on May 1, International Workers Day, will send a clear message to Trump, the billionaire class, and the Republican Party that we reject their agenda of bigotry, hate, and division; that we reject their corporate policies of gutting social services and education. Already we have seen the beginning of a mass fightback against Trump, with hundreds of thousands pouring into the streets after the election. But we can’t stop there. More will be needed to stand up and fight back against the onslaught of right-wing hate and corporate greed.

Join with Socialist Students in walking out and protesting on May 1 to demand:

  • No Deportations, No Ban, No Wall! Defend Immigrants on Campus!
  • No Tuition Hikes - Free College for All!
  • Black Lives Matter - End Police Brutality & Mass Incarceration!
  • For Living-Wage Union Jobs - $15/hr for All Campus Workers!
  • Stop the GOP Assault on Healthcare - Free Comprehensive Coverage for All!
  • Defend Planned Parenthood - For Universal Access to Abortions & Reproductive Care!
  • No New Pipelines, No EPA Cuts - Fight Climate Change with Green Jobs and Renewable Energy!
