West Chester University SDS

Here is a short reportback from a member of WCU SDS:

We are in the early stages (We’ve only been around for about a month) but we’ve already held some large and small events, picketing at the post office on tax day, and a few peace demonstrations including drawing chalk outlines of bodies on the steps of the student union and anti-war slogans on the Quad on the day of the college republicans “Support Our Troops” rally (the administration loved that), as well as handing out flyers about recruiters…   The Chapter organizing has gone really well, we’ve had a lot of support students (and faculty surprisingly)  and are growing quickly.  our facebook group has about 50 members, although usually only about 10-25 come to meetings depending on the day because this is a bad time of year.

Some of the issues/projects this chapter is working on include: University bylaw reform, antiwar actions, anti-recruitment actions, tax resistance education, advocacy of participatory democracy, local unionization, environmental action, drug law reform, prison system reform

If you would like to reach this chapter you can find them on Facebook or contact Andrew Barrett at ab665276[at]wcupa.edu.
