Great article by Suzy Subways on the 25,000 strong CUNY (City University of New York) protest in 1995 that went from the CUNY Coalition to the forming of SLAM! (Student Liberation Action Movement). This student led movement for several years was the leading youth/student organization in New York City. I was proud of my association in supporting SLAM! and meeting the revolutionary people that I did. I learned a great deal about organizing, being radical, strategic thinking and forming alliances. Definitely some of the best organizers and good friends I have known. Click SLAM! to read.
