We are saddened to hear of the death
of writer, historian, and activist Howard Zinn,
whose determined opposition to militarism
focus on popular struggles serves as an
inspiration. Howard served on the advisory
board of the Jewish Voice for Peace--
Howard Zinn will be missed, but the spirit he
embodied, the power of people, workers, and
students to resist militarism and corporate abuse,
lives on in the growing movement to end U.S. and
corporate aggression, occupation, and exploitation.
Yesterday University of South Florida student
Laila Abdelaziz challenged President Barack Obama
on U.S. aid to Israel and violations of human rights.
There is a movement spreading across North American
campuses to highlight how university investments support
the Occupation. We see it in a video from Carleton
University's Students Against Israeli Apartheid and
in the work of the University of Arizona Community
for Human Rights, among many other student groups.
for campus resources that will help
carry Dr. Zinn's legacy forward.
