SDS in cooperation with other student and worker groups on campus are holding a rally starting in the UWM Concourse, with a March out to Spaights’ Plaza to raise awareness and make demands regarding education rights on our campus. College campuses throughout the country will be conducting actions as well. It’s imperative that now more than ever we stand up and demand education rights, as tuition is set to go up another 5.5% every year. According to a recent news released by WUWM radio, Walker and state lawmakers have decided to cut another $46 million from the UW System after having already cut $250 million with the passing of the Budget “repair” bill. According to a recent UWM Post Article, Chancellor Lovell does not seem all that interested in keeping tuition costs down either. THIS IS UNACCEPTABLE. When education rights are under attack, we must stand up and fight back!

1.) Protest at the Council on Foreign Relations and Foreign Affairs Magazine’s toxic, anti Iran debate that is titled: “Time to Attack Iran”

Council on Foreign Relations
58 East 68th Street, NY, NY 10065
(Building just off Park Ave.)
Voice your opposition to this phony debate on whether military attack or sanctions and sabotage should be used to attack Iran. Both sides of this debate are promoting war with Iran and the death and destruction of yet another country in the Middle East. The only debate is what weapons to use.

An evening with Atty. Michael Steven Smith, co-author of the newly
published Who Killed Che? How the CIA got away with Murder.
Thursday, March 1: 7:00 pm
UWM Union: Fireside Lounge.
Free and open to the public!
“A riveting and thoroughly documented history of the murder of Che
Guevara. In an era when ‘targeted assassinations’ and ‘capture and
kill operations’ have become routine . . . Smith’s examination of the
US role in Che Guevara’s death could not be more timely.” –Amy
Goodman, Democracy Now!
In compelling detail, Steven Smith investigates the death of the
world’s most storied revolutionary: Ernesto Che Guevara. This account
spans Guevara’s entire life, but focuses mainly on his final days in
Bolivia where he was wounded, captured, and executed. Referencing
internal US government documentation, Steven Smith exposes the CIA’s
instrumental role in Che’s death.
Michael Steven Smith is an attorney, author, and board member of the
Center for Constitutional Rights. Atty. Smith also wrote Che Guevara
and the FBI, Notebook of a Sixties Lawyer: An Unrepentant Memoir, and
Lawyers You’ll Like: Putting Human Rights First.

The People’s Daily commentary says: “The United States’ motive in parading as a ‘protector’ of the Arab peoples is not difficult to imagine. The problem is, what moral basis does it have for this patronising and egotistical super-arrogance and self-confidence?”
The newspaper recalls the US-led invasion of Iraq. “Even now, violence continues unabated in Iraq, and ordinary people enjoy no security. This alone is enough for us to draw a huge question mark over the sincerity and efficacy of US policy.”
