Defeat U.S. Imperialism!
Conquest of Iraq, Racist Attack on CUNY
Same Enemy, Same Fight!
The U.S. colonization of Iraq is directly linked
to the attack on CUNY – both are part of an all-out war on the oppressed.
This war is being waged by the capitalist rulers and their Democratic and
Republican politicians. It can be defeated only by mobilizing a more powerful
social force: that of the working class, at the head of all the oppressed,
here, in Iraq, and around the world. Our role as students who want to change
the world is to put our energies and skills in the service of this worldwide
fight. Iraqis are fighting back. Good! Our enemy
is here at home: the ruling class that wants us to be cannon-fodder for their
imperialist wars for world domination, that wants us to work for poverty
wages (if we are lucky enough to get any job at all), and is trying to throw
large numbers of black, Latino, working-class and immigrant students out
of school. After all, learning can be dangerous – it can lead to questions.
Military and police recruiters on campus use phony promises to trick people
into joining up for wars of conquest abroad and repression at home.
