Revolutionary Student Brigade The First National Campaign: Throw The Bum Out! Organize To Fight!

From Marxists Internet Archive

Brigade members really threw themselves into building the Throw the Bum Out – Organize to Fight campaign. Chapters on local campuses held discussions, movies, forums, and built “Burn-the-Bum” effigy-torching rallies. Thousands upon thousands of leaflets and pamphlets were distributed, and Throw the Bum Out committees were formed. And whenever administration voiceboxes forayed out to spout their lies, they were confronted by crowds of angry people chanting “Throw All the Bums Out!”. Brigaders threw eggs at Ford (the heir transparent) in Providence Rhode Island, and then built large demonstrations which chased him throughout Ohio and up to Michigan where he was shouted down at a university commencement speech. On March 15th 1n Chicago, 3,000 people marched on Nixon as he spoke to a convention of big businessmen. In Iowa City, Iowa, the Brigade led a thousand students in throwing a “Nixon” Into the river. And In N.Y., the Attica Brigade seized the Statue of Liberty to the applause of millions of Americans.
