Peace camp at University of Wisconsin attacked
STEVENS POINT — Peace supporters have moved a camp from the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point’s Sundial, an open area between the Fine Arts building and the library, in response to violence against them.
“As a group, I think it’s getting too dangerous,” coalition member Matt Filipiak said. “It seems like we’re risking our lives, and our lives are worth more than the movement of peace. We need to be realistic with what we can do with everything else we have in our lives.”
[Not that I'm for stupidity like attacking "peace camps" with Drano bombs, but don't you find the above comment a bit too perfectly ironic, since that's exactly what those who favor military action are saying?]
