Arabs and Muslim students at Cal have been the subject of a string of racist & Islamophobic incidents at UCB this semester, culminating in a violent assault on three Palestinian students two weeks ago.

And following the election of Barack Obama, racism against African-Americans and other minorities has increased sharply nationwide.

Come to a teach-in on racism and Islamophobia next Tuesday, December 2nd to hear more about these attacks, the link to U.S. foreign policy in the Middle East and how we can organize to fight back.

Organized by Berkeley Stop the War,
Students for Justice in Palestine,
& the Muslim Students Association

Many professors from UC Berkeley also make nuclear bombs at UCs Lawrence Livermore and Los Alamos labs and the Nevada Testing Range. This is americas ultimate racism. depleted uranium radioactive fallout warfare has already been widely used agaist iraqi civilians. anyone who is paying the exorbitantly high fees at UC is feeding their energy directly into the most evil institution in the US, the ultimate wolf in neoliberal sheeps clothing. you will never get rid of racism at UC as long as they develop nuclear weapons and stand behind "professor Yoo". As Bush's top legal torture advisor, he fully represents the fascist values of UC's Chancellors, Professors and rich elitist students.

where's the evidence to support the assertion that racist assaults have risen since Obama's election?
