Give me that "ole time religion"

A teach-in, with a star such as Joseph Wilson, remains one of the  
best ways to organize against the Iraq war and those who brought it  
to us and them.

Voices of opposition to the War on Terror echoed off the granite  
ruins at the UC Santa Cruz Quarry Amphitheater on Monday, Apr. 24 in  
a good old fashioned day-long teach-in organized by the UCSC group,  
Faculty Against the War (FAW).

Former US ambassador Joseph Wilson headlined the event. Wilson’s  
speech—scheduled two hours into the 10 hour event—elicited a standing  
ovation.

Feminist studies professor and teach-in organizer, Bettina Aptheker  
introduced the event.

“The purpose is to bring the university a wide range of speakers on  
differing topics with experience and knowledge” on issues pertaining  
to the War on Terror, Aptheker said.

Along with Wilson, “The War on Terror: A Credible Threat” teach-in  
featured 25 speakers including Santa Cruz Mayor Cynthia Mathews,  
Congressman Sam Farr, UCSC Chancellor Denice Denton, Students Against  
War (SAW), Watsonville Brown Berets, and former serviceman Aimee  
Allison.
