- Bruce Lincoln, Caroline E. Haskell Professor of History of Religions University of Chicago:
“I support the goal of forcing a recalcitrant administration to put an end to its ill-conceived adventure in Iraq and I admire the commitment of those who have taken the lead in organizing this strike. In solidarity with them, I will not teach on the 15th and am encouraging my students to take actions consistent with their consciences as regards the war.
I circulated the statement from Columbia students to all my colleagues, told them of my intent to cancel classes and urged them to do the same. I’ve also announced to my classes that the strike is taking place, told them of my support for it, and called off classes.”
