Background:

Today is the fourth consecutive days of student walk-outs in San Diego
county. Yesterday, 5000 students walked out of school; Tuesday it was
4000, and Monday 3000. The walk-outs have been peaceful, and the San
Diego office and their partners have been working 18-hour days to make
sure the students and their rights are protected.

Today, the school district called for police to arrest the students, and
the SD Police Department is intimidating, brutalizing, and arresting the
young people. Christian was just able to visit with 40 students who've
been locked up on charges of loitering and disorderly conduct; some are
as young as 13 years old. The San Diego office is going to be meeting
with school officials tonight and is calling on the city council to
close the schools tomorrow so that students and parents can advocate
peacefully and energies can be channeled into protesting what is
happening in DC, not into a clash between police and citizens in San
Diego. The office and its partners are also calling for a big rally on
April 8 at 1pm in Chicano Park.
