Student Activism: Wisconsin Solidarity School Walkout at 2PM Today Picking Up National Support

March 11, 2011- High school and college students in Madison, Wisconsin are planning a two o’clock walkout this afternoon, and they’re picking up support and planned solidarity demonstrations all over the country.

Students will be converging on the Library Mall on the University of Wisconsin campus for a teach-in on the state’s education budget cuts and new restrictions on collective bargaining at three o’clock.

Wisconsin students are encouraging students around the country to hold walkouts at two o’clock local time, and right now the national Facebook group for the walkout is currently closing in on six thousand members.

I’ll be updating this post over the course of the day as new information comes in.
