Join Cindy Sheehan, Meada Benjamin and 65 others in defending SFSU students


Ten peaceful student protesters at SFSU were grabbed and pushed out of a career fair by police, where the students were protesting military recruitment. They were kicked off campus without a hearing and given notice that if they returned within two weeks, they were subject to "immediate arrest." Some students were instantly made homeless or jobless, and none could go to class on campus. The university let them return to campus after 3 days, in the face of NBC planning to televise coverage.

Students are waiting for the other shoe to drop. Let's not let it drop on them. Tell the university how you feel about its treatment of these students and their rights to protest. Tell the university that you oppose any discipline of these students.

Sixty-Seven international antiwar activists, including 2 former Assistant Secretary Generals of the UN - Denis Halliday and Hans-Christof von Sponeck - have taken a stand for student rights and against the occupation of Iraq.

Join Cindy Sheehan, Medea Benjamin, Kathy Kelly, Camilo Mejia, Dahr Jamailand 60 others in standing up for these students.

As the letter puts it: "Let's not forget what these students - "the SFSU 10?" - were protesting. They were protesting the military's recruiting students into 'careers' that would foster death, destruction and injustice. They were trying to protect their fellow students from serious risks of their being among the tens of thousands of US troops killed, maimed or traumatized in Iraq. They were trying to protect students from participating in war crimes - a war in which 100,000 or more Iraqis have been killed, according to the peer reviewed Lancet study; a war in which the US uses uranium, a radioactive neurotoxin, in munitions; a war in which 1 in 4 combat marines admitted to having killed a civilian, with 8 in 10 having reported seeing injured women or children whom they were unable to help (Boston Globe, July 1, 2004)."


"We stand in defense of the SFSU protesters and call on you to take no disciplinary action against them and to apologize to them for violating of their civil liberties and human rights. We believe the university should also compensate any of the group who may have become homeless or otherwise suffered economic hardship because of the SFSU actions. And we invite you to join us as we renew our efforts to build the movement to end this war, bring all the troops home now, and institute reparations for the people of Iraq. "
