On April 11, members of Students for a Democratic Society (SDS) at the University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh (UWO) held an emergency rally to demonstrate against the impending U.S.-led military escalation in Syria.
Students gathered on campus in the plaza area between Polk Library, Dempsey Hall, Albee Hall, and Reeve Memorial Union. They held signs condemning U.S. intervention in Syria and militarism in general. They chanted “No to war! Yes to peace. U.S. leave the Middle East!” “Exxon-Mobil, BP, Shell - take your wars and go to hell,” and others.
SDS member John Breaux thought the event went very well considering its emergency nature. “War in Syria would be disastrous for the U.S.,” stated Breaux.
