First Resolution of SDS Northeast Regional Conference
25 Apr 2006
(Distribute everywhere)

RESOLUTION OF THE SDS NORTHEAST REGIONAL CONFERENCE

We, the people gathered at the first Regional Conference of the new Students for a Democratic Society, declare:

Whereas, the struggle for a democratic society demands a struggle for the rights and dignity of all;

Whereas, the struggle against the war demands a struggle against the racism, xenophobia, and exploitation that make it possible;

Whereas, participatory democracy cannot coexist with the exclusion and criminalization of immigrant Americans;

Whereas, House Resolution 4437 is an assault on 11 million of our immigrant comrades;

Whereas, we are all of different lands, but we stand together on this common ground, and this is an assault on us all;

Whereas, immigrant communities have called on us to stand in solidarity with them in a General Strike for amnesty on May Day of this year;

BE IT RESOLVED, that the Northeast Regional Conference of Students for a Democratic Society pledges its full support for "El Gran Paro Americano" this May 1, 2006; and

BE IT RESOLVED, that the Northeast Regional Conference of Students for a Democratic Society calls on local chapters to join the strike and organize student walkouts, demonstrations, boycotts, and direct actions that day in solidarity with immigrant communities across America.

Resolution adopted unanimously in Providence, RI on April 23, 2006.

I was in SDS in the 60s, hope this group will carry on radical community based organizing tradition of original SDS, 1962-1968, and not the tutti fruiti nutcase Weatherversion of 1969-71.

Good Luck.
