Violence in all its forms


From Pat Loeb:

Local Teens Protest School Violence in All Its Forms

A sudden gathering of teenagers were expected to gather in Rittenhouse Square in center city Philadelphia on Tuesday afternoon. The Philadelphia Student Union is copying a “flash-mob” style to protest violence.

The student union was expecting some 100 members to show up in Rittenhouse Square about 1:45pm to promote the group’s Campaign for Non-Violent Schools. Student Nevada Johnson says the group objects to all forms of school violence:

“Violence against schools by not giving them enough money to give a student a proper education. Violence against communities by cutting youth spaces.”

Johnson says student union wants to demonstrate that young people can come together and do something positive and not dangerous.

And I am protesting the violence against language that these students are committing by calling this violence.
