" Bust the Bigots "

My friend Max posted this on facebook:

You are warmly invited to an FSP public meeting Bust the Bigots: Defend Bilingual Education! on Sunday, July 20, 2008. We will hear a report on the racist Initiative Petition #19, the latest attempt to scapegoat immigrants for the collapsing economy. If passed by voters in November, IP#19 will butcher English as a Second Language (ESL) programs in Oregon’s public schools. But it can be stopped!

Come share your ideas on ways to defeat this xenophobic attack and defend ESL students and their union teachers. Equal access to quality education for all!

We’ll be meeting at 1:00pm at the Bread and Roses Center, which is at
819 N. Killingsworth St., Portland (1/2 block west of N. Albina, on TriMet bus lines #4 and #72). A hearty brunch will be served at 12:00pm for an $8.00 donation.

For more information call 503-240-4462 or email fsp@igc.org.

I don't know what FSP is, but will find out and amend this post. Max, please feel free to comment on this blog or send me an email or facebook message; Thanks!
