U.S. Social Forum: Students in the anti-war movement

By Kas Schwerdtfeger

Detroit, MI – Members of Students for a Democratic Society (SDS) met June 24 at the U.S. Social Forum. There they discussed the state of the anti-war movement and their plans for future action on campuses and within communities.

“Students continue to oppose the violent and unjust occupations of the Middle East,” said Daniel Ginsberg-Jaeckle, member of the SDS Anti-war Working Group. “We have a duty to support those struggling for free and independent nations in Iraq and Afghanistan, without U.S. influence and military bases.”

The workshop pushed for students to link the anti-war struggle with the National Day of Action to Defend Education on October 7, which is also the anniversary of the U.S. invasion of Afghanistan. Their main slogan will be, “Fund education, not occupation!”
