The bloody and unjust U.S. occupations continue while the majority opposes them. Veterans speak out against the war and the media is silent. It's time to get together and organize a strong student antiwar movement!
Students from campuses across the Midwest will be convening to share their organizing experiences. Together, through workshops and plenaries, we'll try to address some of the issues facing the antiwar movement today, educating ourselves, as well as combining efforts to create long and short-term strategies to end the war.
