Shocker! University Students Support Activist Conference

American University Supports Anarchist Conference
By Nathan Burchfiel

( - An American University-funded student group plans next month to host the ninth annual National Conference on Organized Resistance, a gathering of anarchists and socialists.

The Feb. 3-5 conference "seeks to promote organized action amongst participants against the injustices and inequalities that we confront in our daily lives and in the world," according to the National Conference on Organized Resistance (NCOR) website.

The NCOR student group organizing the event received $1,800 in 2005 and $2,000 in 2004, according to American University budget documents. The student group was previously known as the Animal Rights Effort and received funds under that name -- $1,688 in 2005 and $1,250 in 2004, according to the same records.
