Students for a Democratic Society at the University of Minnesota is organizing a protest on Thursday, April 17th against former National Security Advisor and former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice. Dr. Rice will be delivering a lecture on campus at the University of Minnesota sponsored by the Humphrey School of Public Affairs.

In her roles within the Bush Administration, Condoleezza committed well-documented crimes against humanity, including:

-An Illegal Invasion of Iraq

-War & occupation in Iraq, causing the death of thousands of civilians

-Supporting torture in Abu Ghraib and Guantanomo Bay

-Declaring the US exempt from the Geneva Conventions

By providing Condoleezza Rice a forum, the U is endorsing her support and approval of unilateral preemptive war, and the global degradation of human rights.

Condoleezza’s presence WILL NOT go unchallenged.
