UNT SDS 9/11 Rally

Join the Students for a Democratic Society Denton for a peace rally and march through Denton , ending at a public stage for music and speakers. The main issues to be addressed by this rally are:

· The United State 's illegal and inhumane wars in the Middle East: Afghanistan , Iraq , and now Iran .

· The presence of deceitful military recruiters on the UNT campus, the poverty draft, the University’s role in the military industrial complex, and lack of a serious student response to the wars in the Middle East .

· Re-examining the events of September 11 and demanding a re-investigation. Realizing the whole-sale lies of the official story of what happened on 9/11 and how they are critical in connection with all of the policies that followed.

HISTORY http://simple.wikipedia.org/wiki/Students_for_a_Democratic_Society

http://coursesa.matrix.msu.edu/~hst306/documents/huron.html Also see Tom Hayden and Mario Savio

SDS (Students for a Democratic Society) was the largest and most influential radical student organization of the 1960s. At its inception in 1960, there were just a few dozen members, inspired by the civil rights movement and initially concerned with equality, economic justice, peace, and participatory democracy. With the escalation of the Vietnam War, SDS grew rapidly as young people protested the destruction wrought by the US government and military. Polite protest turned into stronger and more determined resistance as rage and frustration increased all across the country.

Beginning January 2006, a movement to revive Students for a Democratic Society took shape. A small group of high school and college students reached out to former members of the "Sixties" SDS, to re-envision a student movement in the United States. They called for a new generation of SDS, to build a radical multi-issue organization grounded in the principle of participatory democracy. Several chapters at various colleges and high schools were subsequently formed.

This particular chapter of SDS seeks to promote interest in pro peace issues on the University of North Texas campus and the greater Denton Area using the tactics of Non-Violent Civil-Disobedience. We seek to promote solidarity among all pro peace groups and support one another. SDS is a non- hierarchical group of friends and volunteers who share the principals of participatory democracy. In short, we seek peace in our lifetime. Peace among nations, peace among peoples, and peace in our hearts and minds.

60's...A cool era..."and we won't be fooled again".

I remember the era of the "Students for a Democratic Society", SDS. I am sure that Joe and others on this board do also. I see so many aspects of the 60's going on today. However, unlike the 60's, the coverage is not on TV, but on the internet. In the 60's, the TV and independent papers picked up the news.

During the 60's there was the "New Left", the "Civil Rights Movement" and the Hippie influence.

To groove in the time period. The University of California, Berkley is located near San Francisco. Students from Berkley (which was dry at the time, but with a drinking age of 18) would go to Frisco to hang out and drink in the progressive area. As the 50's closed and the 60's started, the influence of the "Beatniks" in the San Francisco area curved into the hippie movement. It is estimated that around 100,000 people traveled to San Francisco in the summer of 1967, the SUMMER OF LOVE. (Although "Love" in this context was not about sex, sex was happening bigtime and there was no HIV AIDS in this era.)

August 1964 was the Gulf of Tonkin incident which escalated the Vietnam War bigtime.
August 1963 was the famous Civil Rights march on Washington, DC. An estimated 200,000 to 300,000 demonstrators gathered in front of the Lincoln Memorial, where King delivered his famous "I Have a Dream" speech.

On October 1, 1964 the University of California, Berkeley exploded into the free speech movement. Led by a Friends of SNCC* student activist named Mario Savio, more than three thousand students surrounded a police car where a student, arrested for setting up a card table against a ban by the University, was being taken away. The sit-down stopped the police car from moving for 36 hours. The demonstrations, meetings and strikes all but shut the university down. Hundreds of students were arrested. SDS leaders watched and learned from this lesson.

*{ The Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee (or SNCC, pronounced "snick") was one of the principal organizations of the American Civil Rights Movement in the 1960s.}

SDS Started in Chicago.
In the school year 1962-1963, the President of SDS was Tom Hayden, who later became famous. See this famous document, the "Port Huron Statement" written by Hayden.--> http://coursesa.matrix.msu.edu/~hst306/documents/huron.html
Hayden has a rich history of involvement and can be seen interviewed by Cosmos of TruthAction.org

The draft became a very real issue in the lives of students in America. The 1965 demonstrations in Washington, DC attracted about 25,000 anti-war protesters and SDS became the leading student group against the war on most U.S. campuses.

"For the first time at an SDS meeting people smoked marijuana; Pancho Villa mustaches... blue workshirts, denim jackets, and boots were worn by both men and women." These were people generally raised outside of the East, many from the Midwest and Southwest.

The University of Chicago's administration building was taken over in a three day sit-in in May. Protests and sit-ins spread to many other universities. The summer convention of 1966 moved even farther west, this time to Clear Lake, Iowa.

The Winter and Spring of 1967 saw more militancy of the protests at many campuses. Harassment by the authorities was also on the rise. The hippie movement really began to take hold. The 1967 convention spoke on the draft and resisting within the Army itself, and made a call for immediate withdrawal from Vietnam. Also, a women's liberation vote was passed for the first time.

That Fall saw more anti-war actions. The school year started with a large demonstration against the University of Wisconsin in Madison, Wisconsin on October 17 for letting Dept of War recruiters on campus. Peaceful at first, the demonstrations turned to a sit-in that was violently broken up by the Madison police and riot squad, causing many injuries and arrests. A rally and a student strike then closed the university for several days. Demonstrations against the draft led by members of the Resistance, the War Resisters League, and SDS added fuel to the fire of resistance. After regular civil rights tactics of peaceful pickets, the Oakland California Stop the Draft Week ended in mass hit and run fights with the police. The huge (100,000 people) October 21 March on the Pentagon saw hundreds arrested and hurt. Night-time raids on draft offices began to spread.

In the spring of 1968, National SDS activists led an effort on the campuses called "Ten Days of Resistance" and local chapters held rallies, marches, sit-ins and teach-ins, ending in a one-day strike on April 26. About a million students stayed away from classes that day, the largest ever student strike in the history of the United States. It was mostly ignored by the New York City-based national media, which was more focused on the student shutdown of Columbia University in NYC, led by an inter-racial alliance of Columbia SDS chapter activists and Student Afro Society activists. Because of the Columbia Student Revolt, "SDS" became a household name in the United States for a few years; and membership in SDS chapters around the United States grew greatly during the 1968-69 school year.

Because of violence & infiltration, the SDS movement quickly died during the following years. **

Wont Get Fooled Again

9/11 Truth for PEACE and DEMOCRACY...

YUP, events like this will really help to do the trick...

If we co-mingle 9/11 Truth, Peace and Democracy [like counting votes and stuff], well, we will have a movement that will last for a long, long time...and one that will straighten out alotta things in this country and the world...

These co-mingled movements will have HUGE impact as we bring peace activists from last century into this century and teach them how to see the 9/11 Truth Movement as a wondeful "looking glass" into alotta malfeasances conducted by politicians, corporations and our military...

When current and last century's peace activists "lights go on" regarding the Truths behind 9/11...WOW...what a good gang to climb on board...

The unpcoming revolution is a revolution of the mind that will come to have its way with these criminals...because...believe it or not, we are smarter than them...its just gonna take some time and modern day Truthers are understandilby impatient...

And of course, live music and drinking beer really helps when visiting the 9/11 Truth Rabbit Hole for the first time...

Suggested best course of opening minds to 9/11...

...get the people of peace to understand the "false-flag-ops" that have been going on for three centuries now...everything easily falls into place after this barrier is breached...

Suggested 9/11 video to show if we can get it closed captioned...9/11 Mysteries...

Can you imagine some good music, some good libations, and 9/11 Mysteries with words scrolling and it "looping" on the screen all night long, with it playing alongside the bands...man-o-man...the 9/11 Rabbit Hole Lobby will be full...

And one last point to add when talking peace...

The one compliment NEVER, EVER GIVEN to people...is that our citizenry needs to be TRICKED and LIED TO in order for them to support another war...no brag, just facts...and never celebrated because we are inherently a peaceful lot! [there are exceptions for sure...]

Love, Peace and Progress...

For all you say about a break with the activism of the past, might one not see some continuity between the 'teach-ins' of the Vietnam War era and what you call CI today? The main difference being, of course, that CI is dispersed, not in one centralized gathering place, involving smaller groups of people, and on a more flexible schedule, with the possibility of reaching more people over time (and more different types of people) than with the teach-ins of yore.

I do see the parallels with teach ins...but now its teach OUTS!

The problem that I have with past rememberances with the 60s and 70s is that it seems that the ONLY thing that has lasted are these antiquated and easily compromised marches to nowhere in front of nobody.

I'm trying any way that I can to get folks from the past to bring the best of that era forward and then computerize AND informationize it!

Far too many older folks seem content and sorta resting on some past laurels...we REALLY need the gray hairs right now. The amazing documentary "Sir!, No Sir" makes it so clear that the marches may have been deliberately "set up" to be the protest remnants from the 60s and 70s. I call modern protests "The March of the Penguins" but without cameras...

I was there, I helped teach and learned so much myself, and there was so much more good going on than what is being practiced by the "grayhairs" now.

I really think that cointelpro has worked very quietly and effectively to conveniently have society "forget" the good things from that era, and to have modern peace groups ONLY practice the old fashioned, inefficient and highly ineffective "march" thing.

I remember so well meeting and being with people...who were being with other people...who were collectively moving ahead. It was AWSOME...but now, peace activists get together every now and then for an afternoon march from nowhere to nowhere instead of being out with the public and informing them for change on a continuous basis.

Even the wonderful "vigils" need to be modified into the info age...CI is actually nothing more than "interactive vigils" that share website links...AND...vigilers actually TALK with their neighbors sharing information and not just stating opinion...its really that simple.

Thanks for connecting...you are the first one out there...old dogs CAN learn new tricks, and when the grayhairs join their grandchldren in this "computery thingy" in THIS century, their long held dreams will be realized!

There is little outrage because there is so much INRAGE...I see it every time that I perform CI.

The grayhairs would know this if they were out in the streets right now performing CI and thus mixing with their neighbors on a regular basis...instead of doing the "afternoon march thing" with the same clan that has been doing this same thing for 40 YEARS...and now who complain about the diminishng numbers out there! There is a "forest for the trees" message here.

Its SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO frustrating getting the older clan into the webworld and out into the public...

But when they do...LOOOOOK OUUUUUUT!

And the HI PERPS know this and its why they are working so hard to keep the two movements apart...and doing so very effectively and very ACTIVELY!!!

I have been to many "leftover peace group" meetings and they constantly "shun" the 9/11 Truth Movement...and they use the same refrains and "talking points". So, it appears to come from the top in WDC...or from cointelpros...or both!

Thanks again for even reading about CI...and moreso for connecting some dots...there are some really good things going on in this century...the grandkids are GREAT...and grandparents can have a blast with them as we all create the revolution that those in the 60s dreamt of...!

Love, Peace and Progress

PS: The initials CI were chosen specifically to produce conversation bewteen CI and CD...and NOT to eliminate CD. CI does everything opposite of CD, and thusly can serve as a springboard to understanding the differences. And CD is something that we are duty bound to do when the situation calls for it...rdh

Might be a bit off topic...

But as an artist I have to congratulate who ever the graphic designer of that flyer was - great work!
