We got to meet with Fred Zuckerman, candidate for General President of the Teamsters. I have no doubt that Fred, John Palmer and the rest of the Teamsters United slate are committed to rebuilding #unionPOWER. In Florida, we're going all-out to win in November. #MakeTheTeamstersFightAgain — with Richard Blake, Gabriella Killpack, Fred Zuckerman, DW Ponder and Kas Schwerdtfeger.
About 40 people came out during a record storm, April 14 2018, outside of the U.S. Army Center, rallying against the attacks by the U.S. on Syria, and to stand in solidarity with the Syrian people.
Kas Schwerdtfeger stated “We condemn the attacks made on Syria, and demand that they stop.” The community chanted as the storm progressed, “Hands off Syria!” “Money for workers not war!”
The event was sponsored by the End the Wars Committee of Peace Action Wisconsin, Young People's Resistance Committee, Milwaukee Anti-War Committee and by Freedom Road Socialist Organization/FightBack!.
Members of the Students for a Democratic Society at the University of Minnesota Public group in 2017 included Kas Schwerdtfeger.
On Oct. 23-24 2010 , around 100 student activists from across the country converged here for the fifth Students for a Democratic Society (SDS) National Convention.
“I felt the convention was a good opportunity to learn different methods of how to perform actions,” said Allan Brooks, who traveled over 20 hours from Gainesville, Florida to attend the convention. “If it wasn’t for different chapters meeting up then I wouldn’t have learned how to write legislation, I wouldn’t have learned how to do sit-ins or occupations.”
“I was tickled pink to attend the conference. It was my first national convention,” Milwaukee SDS member Dolly Perse remarked. “I learned a lot and will be much more prepared for the next national convention.”
This fall’s convention marked the first time SDS has met since the historic March 4 and October 7 days of action for Education Rights, which rocked the nation with militant protests demanding an end to cuts to public education. "Nationally, SDSers had a lot of important experiences to share," national SDS organizer Kas Schwerdtfeger said, "SDS has been the single largest student organization involved in the education rights movement and the knowledge shared will no doubt help make the movement even stronger."
