Over 100 San Diegans attended a six-hour “Movement-Building Workshop” sponsored by the San Diego Coalition for Peace and Justice November 18 in Balboa Park. Much of the discussion revolved around the long-term ambitions of the Right to use the crisis atmosphere after September 11 to smash civil liberties and silence Left-wing dissent once and for all. Also discussed were racist or religiously-motivated attacks against Arab-Americans and Muslim Americans, and what the intense patriotic fervor sparked by September 11 — symbolized by U.S. flag displays — means for the future of anti-war activism in this country.
