The first explicitly ANTI-WAR teach-in in Southern California is taking place tomorrow, October 10th at 6pm. This event also marks the first major project of the newly-formed Student Coalition Against War (SCAW) on UCLA Campus. The teach-in may be drawing near but there is still work to be done after tomorrow, and SCAW is ready to contribute in any way possible.

"We have been planning this teach-in for weeks, but the anti-war message is even more important now that US bombs are falling on Afghanistan," says Behzad Raghian, student organizer with the Student Coalition Against War, who will join professors, seasoned anti-war activists, and other members of the LA community in a panel addressing the tragedy on September 11th from an anti-war perspective. Also speaking at the teach-in will be Blase Bonpane, Director and Chief Executive Officer of the Office of the Americas and professor at Los Angeles Harbor College, as well as Helen Sklar from the National Lawyers Guild, Professor John Agnew of the UCLA Geography Department, Edina Lekozic of the Muslim Public Affairs Council, and a member of the Afghan Student Association.

The teach-in will focus on: what we know (and don’t know) about the impact of our bombs on Afghanistan, US foreign policy in the Middle East, backlash against Arabs and Muslims in our country, and attacks on our civil liberties. A discussion period will follow the presentations, to encourage dialogue around alternatives to military action.
