27 Schools In as Actions About to Kick Off

New schools are being added every hour to the list of those involved in antiwar actions on February 15th. Just today, we got confirmation that folks from UCLA, Emerson College, and Suffolk University (both in Boston) have preparations underway for tomorrow.

This leaves us with 26* schools in 10 states – California, New York, Illinois, New Mexico, Massachussets, Georgia, Oregon, New Jersey, North Carolina, and Tennessee. And we’re still waiting to hear from MIT.

Who’ll be next?

* UPDATE: Santa Barbara City College is in. That makes 27!

P.S. For some inspiration, see this op-ed on the history and successes of student strikes.

P.P.S.¬† A day-of story at Columbia U. details the huge support the strike has – including labor unions, professors, and grad students. Even the College Republicans havn’t put out a statement against it!

  1. Anarkid

    The rally and march at Columbia just concluded. As I type this the teach-in is about to begin. We had great turn-out considering the bitter cold, I would estimate ~300 people. This march has made one thing clear: every leftist group out there needs to mobilize a huge action for March 18/19th, the fourth anniversary of the war. The anti-war movement looks like its coming back, this time from the grassroots, and we gotta continue it. Peace!

  2. Southern SDS

    Regarding actions around the 18th/19th: SDS is calling for a national day of student and youth action against the war in Iraq on March 20th. There was a meeting at the SOA demo of SDSers where 100 students voted to make this happen. So, March 20th – get organized against the war in Iraq!

  3. Yo SDSers.. would you all be open to coordinating actions with multiple groups in one big independent coalition?!

  4. Southern SDS
