On January 17, regional conferences at George Washington University and San Francisco State University brought together representatives from over 70 colleges and universities to discuss strengthening the anti-war movement. Delegates founded the Campus Anti-War Network (CAN) and voted to oppose the war on Iraq as well and move to educate and make active our classmates and campus communities. The national conference in Chicago on February 22-23 has been called to help achieve these goals. It is our view that the best way to build an independent student voice within the anti-war movement as a whole is for the hundreds of schools with anti-war groups to get together face to face and democratically decide how we can all work together to stop this war.
Members of the press are encouraged to RSVP for the press conference. Press packets will be made available at the press conference. Conference attendees will also be made available to answer specific questions about the conference, the national student anti-war movement, and our view on BushÂs war against Iraq. Another press release will follow at the completion of the conference.
