Editorial, March 29, 1935, Page 2
motions pledging to support the April 12 anti-war strike were passed
this week by both the Conference Against War and Fascism and the
Student Council. , Through all their representatives in these two
organizations, the students of Brooklyn College have clearly expressed
their wholehearted opposition to war.
It can scarcely be
expected that the strong differences of opinion held by absolute
pacifists and those who condone only class wars or defensive wars will
have been ironed out by April 12, and that all who participate in the
strike will be of one mind.
to set aside these individual and factional ifs and buts in order to
present a firmly united front, however, is evidence of the sincerity
behind the student movement against war.
If some of those
who leave their classes April 12 should choose to make mental
reservations about a minor phase of any particular strike slogan, the
effectiveness of the anti-war demonstration will not be lessened.
