Northland College to hold referendum on the war

Last week the Northland College Student Association voted to approve by a vote of 9 to 8 a proposal from NAWC that the school hold a campus referendum on the war. Since that vote, the Ashland chapter of the Northland Anti-War Coalition has met to solidify its plans for the referendum. While these plans are not set in stone, as of right now, it looks like the referendum will be held on Wednesday, May 2. The voting will take place by secret ballot at a talbe in the Ponzio Student Center from 11am to 6pm. The ballot will ask the simple question, "Do you support the current war in Iraq?"

This referendum will take place just days before the anti-war protest & peace festival, which will be taking place on Saturday, May 5. Check our activist calendar to the left for more info.

A planning meeting/potluck for the referendum will take place on Sunday, April 29 at 5pm at 1506 N. 19th St. in Superior, WI.
