Title:Off BYU

Announces: [Demonstration], HUB, Thursday, 12:00 P.M. Calls for: The severance of all ties and arrangements between the UW and Brigham Young University. Quote from document: "It is not a matter of wishing success to the victim of aggression, but of sharing his fateone must accompany him to his death or to victory. --Che Guevara" Background information: "In March 1970, the UW Black Student Union, joined by the Seattle Liberation Front, the Weathermen and hundreds of unaffiliated students, protested the [UW's] ongoing athletic relationship with Brigham Young University. Claiming that the Mormon Church 'ran' BYU and that the Church advocated white supremacy, BSU called on the university to sever a relationship that sanctioned those policies." (Boswell, Sharon & McConaghy, Lorraine. Outrage and rebellion - 'Boomers' bring battle of Vietnam to American Soil - and a counterculture is born. 1996, October 6. Seattle Times, p. B8.) Note on date: Mar 4, 1970 is stamped on document in green ink.
