SDS: Walk out on war on March 20


Students for a Democratic Society is calling on students around the country to walk out of classes in protest of the war on Tuesday:


This past November, 100 students from twenty different college campuses came together at a Students for a Democratic Society meeting in Ft.Benning, GA and unanimously decided that March 20th be declared a national day of student and youth resistance against the war! SDS is calling on all students and youth to get out in the streets, get involved and get organized against this war! We, the students and youth of this country, are taking an active stand against US imperialism and fighting for a better world. We reject this war of greed and profit, and are walking out of our classes and taking to the streets in protest!


A full list of planned walk-outs at schools around the country is below the jump.
