Register Now!!! Contact us at wcw_changing_ground [at] yahoo.com and indicate the full names of youth/students who wish to register. Call 415-286-3408 for questions about the conference and for housing information. We are asking $5-10 per day to attend (Th.-Sat.), but no one will be turned away for lack of funds.

This October 5th we are calling for nationwide protests where campuses will be shut down and student walkouts will bring business-as-usual to a halt. To do this we need a generation of leaders who challenge the stifling politics-as-usual atmosphere with a "Be Realistic: Demand the Impossible" spirit and the moral clarity concentrated in the statement of, "I would rather die than to have anyone tortured to save my life" – former U.K. Ambassador Craig Murray. From the most experienced organizers to youth just beginning to get involved in political activism, we have a schedule that will be exciting for all:
