Columbia Univ. Student Anti-War Conference
- Important information taken from another list:
ANNOUNCING A CALL FOR A NATIONAL STUDENT ANTIWAR CONFERENCE!!!
When: FEBRUARY 22, 23, 24, 2002
Where: COLUMBIA UNIVERSITY, NEW YORK, NEW YORK
Why: At this critical time, the student-based antiwar movement needs to
come together and form a national network that can coordinate actions and
The time has come for a NATIONAL CONFERENCE, to build on
the successes of the regional conferences in November and unite the
student movement from coast to coast. On a national conference call on
12/11, elected representatives from antiwar committees and networks across
the country expressed a strong desire to hold the conference in New York.
People for Peace, the Columbia University/Morningside Heights antiwar
coalition, is offering to host such a conference, in coordination with
other antiwar committees in New York. We believe that one coalition
or one city cannot decide the structure of such a conference or the
process by which it will be run. Therefore, we call for a NATIONAL
PLANNING COMMITTEE, composed of elected representatives from
individual coalitions, citywide and/or regional networks, that can begin
to plan the conference in the most democratic, accountable way possible.
