The rising wave of outrage against Republican cuts is coming to Columbus.
On Sunday, June 12th, Speaker of the U.S. House John Boehner will help explain how thousands of graduating students at Ohio State University's commencement should face their future.
Yes, the same John Boehner that wants to gut investments these graduates need for health care, education and green jobs. The same John Boehner that wants to revoke young people's ability to stay on their parent's health care until they're 26, cut Pell Grants for higher education, and destroy funding for green jobs programs that will build the economy of tomorrow.
The worst part? Boehner claims to speak on their behalf. He claims these cuts are in their interest. He said, "I hope that you will join us in the fight for our children and grandchildren's future."
This generation is speaking up for themselves and protesting these cuts -- but they need your help. Thousands of graduates are going to turn their backs on John Boehner's speech, just as he turned his back on them.
Will you join us for a protest in solidarity with this generation of graduates?
Boehner claims we need massive cuts to protect this generation's future, but his plan would undermine their investments in their future to pay for tax cuts to the wealthy and subsidies to big oil companies. He says he wants to do something about the national debt, but doesn't seem to care about the part of it made up of their student loan debt.
We believe we can cut the deficit without cutting out young people's future.
Ohio State graduates need your help to make their protest a national story.
Will you join us for a protest immediately before their commencement?
Parking is available in the west lot near campus, with shuttle service available to the protest. Volunteers will be around to help steer you in the right direction.
