Rutgers Teach-In in protest against honoring Condoleezza Rice


By War Criminals Watch - Posted on 03 May 2014

GREAT NEWS! CONDOLEEZEE RICE WITHDREW FROM MAKING THE RUTGERS COMMENCEMENT SPEECH. A VICTORY FOR THE STUDENTS & TEACHERS OF RUTGERS. We assume the Teach-In will still occur, now as a victory celebration.

Not only does the Board of Governors' decision amount to an erasure of history, but there is a widespread assumption, at Rutgers and elsewhere, that we do not or cannot really know what happened 11 or 12 years ago with respect to the Iraq war, the adoption of torture practices, and Dr. Rice's role in both. We are happy, therefore, to announce an educational teach-in about what is in fact known – and about what this knowledge implies, in our current predicament, for the Rutgers community.

5:30- Keynote: Jumana Musa, Deputy Dir., Rights Working Group.  Introduced by Prof. Jackson Lears.

6:30-9:30 - Panels of professors on Torltlure, the Iraq War and on Academic Values.

With live music, food and beverages.

Followed by video clips and live commentary.  The evening will end with the screening of "Taxi to the Dark Side."
