Violence, Non-Violence, & Change (New University Conference Crisis Paper)

Chicago: New University Conference, 1970. First edition. One sheet folded, 4 pp. One in a series of crisis papers issued by NUC to address the political and tactical differences between different factions of student radicals. This paper focused on the question of violence on college campuses. The author(s) discuss seven of the common statements heard on campus during Strike Week, including whether its democratic to call a strike if most students want to attend class, the abolishment of ROTC, the prevention of students from going to class, violence in response to violence, whether students will be listened to if they employ violence, violence as self-defeating and violence as corrupting. The author(s) ultimately refuse to condemn the tactic of violence in the face of “400 years of American racism and 10 years of war in Vietnam.” Some wear across the top edge, toning to final page. Three copies in WorldCat at Temple, Northwestern and the Univ. of Kansas. Item #06007
