Strike Against War by Occidental Student Coalition to end War

by FYI Wednesday, Feb. 14, 2007 at 7:13 PM

Strike plans at Occidental College (1600 Campus Road, Los Angeles, CA 90041):

In the main quad from 10:00 am to 11:30 pm student group discussions with professors who cancelled normal class

11:30-12:00 Student debates on the Military Commissions Act / torture, the future in Iraq, threats on Iran etc.

12:00-1:30 Speakers (incl. Iraq Veterans against the War speaker, Larry Everest, professors and more, TBA)

1:30-4:30 student group discussions with professors who cancelled normal class Evening: vigil, documentary showings (Bush Crimes Comission, etc.)

The Occidental College community, acting in solidarity with students across the country on February 15, will strike against the Iraq war and the war crimes being committed under the banner of a “War on Terror.” Our coalition believes in the equal humanity of all persons, and by striking, we will be making a clear, powerful statement that demands an end to the overwhelming death, lawlessness and inhumanity that characterizes the occupation of Iraq and U.S. foreign policy. End complacency on campuses. Transform the Occidental community into a bastion of resistance against the war Hold members of the executive branch and Congress accountable for war crimes and violations of the U.S. constitution.

Repeal the Patriot Act.
Repeal the Military Commissions Act of 2006.
End all acts of torture as defined by the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. Respect Iraqi sovereignty and Iraqi demands for troop withdrawal. Respect U.S. troop demands in the Appeal for Redress to end the war. No troop increase and no more funding for illegal wars. No U.S. strike on Iran.
Shut down Guantanamo Bay and Abu Ghraib.
No more racial profiling in national security matters.

Our strike will bring these issues to the forefront of our consciousness both inside and outside the classroom, dramatically changing the political climate on campus. To express the sense of urgency that we should all feel at this moment in history, we will not participate in business as usual on Thursday, February 15th, and will continue to fight for these demands until they are met—anything less will make us complicit in these crimes.

This event is being organized by the Revolutionary Communist Party.
