SDS RIDES AGAIN!

A student IWW member along with other students at both college and high school level have restarted the American radical student organization, Students For A Democratic Society (SDS). According to the Indymedia article:

“New York, NY. Several chapters of Students for a Democratic Society (SDS) announced today, Monday, January 16, 2006, their intent to form a
national organization and hold the first SDS national convention since 1969. "It seemed appropriate to make this announcement today, on the observed Martin Luther King day", said SDS regional organizer Thomas Good.
"We have an anti-war movement that is addressing the issue of stopping the bloodletting in Iraq but the civil rights issue remains unaddressed", he added. The national convention is scheduled for Summer 2006 and will be preceded by a series of regional conferences occurring on the Memorial Day weekend.

The newly formed SDS national organization was the idea of a student
anti-war activist who contacted other student and veteran organizers. Good joined the new SDS when Stonington High School (Connecticut) senior Pat Korte contacted him with the idea of linking nascent SDS chapters into a national structure. “ To read more
