Back SPA

We would like to urge that students vote for the fee assessment for the Stanford Progressive Alliance (SPA) on April 15-16. SPA has been active since the fall of 1980 pulling together a large number of organizations on the campus and promoting their activities, as well as organizing workshops and educational meetings around the economic and social issues of concern to Stanford students.

For the first time in many years, faculty, students and staff were brought together in these discussions. In winter quarter these groups, through SPA and with the help of the Dickinson Symposium Fund and SCOPE, sponsored a series of symposia on issues crucial to the future of our society. We feel that these activities, bringing together students and the local community, should be supported by the student body, and we urge you to do so.

SCRIP rally

Demonstrators representing Cat Tex (I.) a repressed black South African (center) and General Electric (r.) presented a skit as part of November 30 1977's noon rally which encouraged divestment by the University of stock in corporations that operate in South Africa. About 700 persons crowded into the lobby of Old Union to watch skits and listen to songs. Speakers included Keith Archuleta, Black Students Union co-president, and Lise Giraud, a member of United Stanford Employees, at the rally sponsored by the Stanford Committee for a Responsible Investment Policy (SCRIP). SCRIP has demanded that the University come up with a divestment plan by Feb. 14, and achieve divestment within six months after that.[4]

Chile Emergency Committee

A full-page ad appeared in the "New York Times", September 23, 1973, p. 9, by an organization calling itself Chile Emergency Committee, at 135 W. 4th Street, New York City, NY, 10012, Jane Rothenberg Secretary. It was definitely pro-Allende and anti-coup, but what is important is that the list of sponsors included the heart of the Latin American Lobby of communists, marxists, socialists, radicals and the Left in academia, and obviously took a lot of work to network in getting these people to sign on to the ad. This was no spur-of-the-moment effort though it was put together within a few weeks of the coup.

Stanford University signatories included Lise Giraud.
