Sterling Hall Bombing of 1970

Mon August 24 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Monday August 24th marks the 50th anniversary of the Bombing of the Army Math Research Center at the University of Wisconsin-Madison–otherwise known an the Sterling Hall Bombing–carried out by four Madison radicals (the “New Year Gang”) in the very early hours of that day during UW’s late-summer break. This violent and dramatic act of protest against the Vietnam War and a military facility directly involved in U.S. worldwide counter-insurgency efforts occurred after years of peaceful protests went unheeded by UW and governmental authorities. It also tragically cost the life of a post-doctoral physics researcher in the adjoining UW Physics Dept. During the Access hour of Monday August 24th 7-8pm the topic of what led-up to the Sterling Hall Bombing, the bombing itself, and its aftermath and reverberations to this day will be summarized by three participants in the UW antiwar struggles of the late 1960s and early 1970s, including Glenn Silber, co-director of the 1979 documentary “The War At Home”. Half an hour will be reserved for call-ins and and responses.
