The War on Terror: A Credible Threat will be a teach-in on surveillance, university life and the war on terror. It is to be a day of reflection on U.S. International Politics and University Life.
As a result of student demonstrations against military recruiters in April 2005, the Defense Department listed our campus as a "credible threat." They specified neither their means of assessment nor the nature of the threat. Because the United States government explicitly labeled the University of California at Santa Cruz a "credible threat" in its "War on Terror", we as educators are obliged to seek and to provide an understanding of both this "War" and the "threats" that the US Government claims to combat.
