CRITICAL DEMONSTRATION WED. SEPT 3 at 4:15 onwards. This is the OPTIMAL TIME TO DEMONSTRATE YOUR DISGUST because the District is conducting discussions about the Garfield rape victim. If you let them get away with this, another child will be next. . . . . Your support for the victim, her family, and other victims must happen this week. 75-100+ people are needed to express their outrage for discounting sexual assault, the negligence that led to this easily preventable rape/sodomy (and other students’ assaults), lawlessness, the civil rights violations that earned the District a federal investigation.

Posters: Easily preventable sexual assault/willful negligence/lawlessness/ Peaslee resign!
