Stop the killing
of the people of Iraq

"We have heard that a half million children have died," said "60 Minutes" reporter Lesley Stahl, speaking of US sanctions against Iraq. "I mean, that's more children than died in Hiroshima. And -- and you know, is the price worth it?" Her guest, in May 1996, U.N. Ambassador Madeleine Albright, responded: "I think this is a very hard choice, but the price -- we think the price is worth it."

Well the Student Direct Action Coalition stands up for basic human rights. We believe that murdering thousands of children is wrong. Albright is crazy if she believes that it our country has the right to murder innocent families.

On Wed. the 18th of Feb. we went to Columbus to protest Albright's speech. About 35 of us managed to make it to the "town meeting". One person was arested for having a sign which read "Stop Killing innocent Iraqi families".

The student direct action coalition has co sponsored a trip to a vigil in Dayton against the war in Iraq. There has also been a prayer vigil here on campus and a number of informational meetings. These events draw about 60 students on average. We did a march to the richmond city building from campus and then we made some noise. It seemed like there was support for a peaceful resolution even here in Richmond Indiana. For more current information, check out our message board , or our links page . If you are already involved, check out this list of other people interested in peace action from spring semester '98.

Last semester our group was involved in the war resistors PENTA-B-GONE. day, which was October 24th. Next year we will be going to Washington.
