Students for a Democratic Society - now forming in Santa Cruz!

If you agree that we need to end the war NOW and that the Bush administration is a clear and present danger to the health and well being of the average American citizen and to liberty and freedom, then you need to join SDS and help bring the noise.
Help start Students for a Democratic Society in Santa Cruz and take the anti-war movement to the next level!

Students for a Democratic Society, one of the most influential anti-war groups of the 1960s, has been re-formed, and is preparing for its first national meeting later this year.


I've joined, and I've decided to start a local chapter. As a Cabrillo College student, my first instinct was to start a chapter based on that campus, but I'll happily work with others to form a county-wide umbrella organization, and help folks start chapters on their own campuses (there are already 26 separate high school SDS chapters in existence). My goal in forming this is to have SDS in Santa Cruz act as a catalyst for radical, in your face protest, civil disobedience and direct actions aimed at ending the war NOW and disrupting the ability of the powers that be to further their fascist agenda of eliminating civil liberties, imposing a police surveillance state, and shredding the last strands of the safety net.

If you agree that we need to end the war NOW and that the Bush administration is a clear and present danger to the health and well being of the average American citizen and to liberty and freedom, then you need to join SDS and help bring the noise.

Questions? Call or email me.

All you have to do to join is fill out the online form:
http://www.studentsforademocraticsociety.org/join/sds_membership.cgi

Mention “Thomas Leavitt” and “Ohlone Chapter” (which is the preliminary name I picked) if you're a Cabrillo College student.

If you want to start a separate chapter on your own campus, fill out the form here:
http://www.studentsforademocraticsociety.org/join/sds_chapter.cgi

And then get members to sign up online the same way.

Sending $5.00 to:
SDS, Post Office Box 7213, Ann Arbor, MI 48107

will get you (and each member who does this as well) a button and a membership card and it will help the national org. with the costs of the convention, the website, membership card printing, etc...

Visit the SDS web site at:

for more information and actions taken by local orgs.

Thomas Leavitt
