Campus Anti-War "Teach-Ins" Begin: Spread Them To Other Campuses!

Foes of War in Iraq Rally for Teach-In
Some at GWU Protested Vietnam

Forty years ago, the first anti-Vietnam War teach-in was held at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor, triggering an educational campaign nationwide that some credited with helping end the war.

Last night, similar antiwar teach-ins were held in Washington, Ann Arbor and San Francisco, with similar hopes -- this time, to end the Iraq war.

In Washington, about 300 people, most older than college age, gathered in the George Washington University campus auditorium for two hours to hear an antiwar panel that included a former U.S. soldier in Iraq, a woman who lost her son in battle and an author-filmmaker.

The gathering, sponsored by the think tank Institute for Policy Studies, was reminiscent of the Vietnam era: people with antiwar buttons and antiwar passions.

I hope that campus DU'ers begin working with other anti-war students to organize teach-ins at other colleges. Let's have a wave of campus "teach-ins" on the Iraq war!
