“Money for Jobs and Education, Stop the War and Occupation!” “Cut the funding, stop the war! What the hell is Congress for?” Anti-war impatience reigned on Low Plaza this afternoon as a hundred-odd students, professors, union workers, and community members listened to a slew of speeches organized by the Columbia Coalition Against the War while […]
