About

Students for a Democratic Society is a recognized student organization at the University of Houston. Our mission is to promote the active participation of young people in the formation of a movement to build a society free from poverty, ignorance, war, exploitation, racism, and sexism. We began organizing in January of 2009 and have been working on campaigns defending immigrant rights and opposing militarism.

  2. REQUEST TO PLACE LINK ON YOUR WEBSITE FOR A POWERFUL YOUTUBE VIDEO CALLED WAR (bring the soldiers back).

    I’m from Perth in Western Australia and have a band called nakedflame.   

    I have just uploaded to YouTube an anti-war music video clip with the aim of stoping the war and bringing the soldiers back home !

    Following is a link to the nakedflame video clip for a song called –

    WAR (bring the soldiers back)

                       http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bnxrsGwN-xo 

    WAR (bring the soldiers back) has been written in Perth in the hope of raising the attention to the fact that over 1.3 Million innocent civilians and over 10,000 soldiers have died in the unwarranted wars against Iraq and Afghanistan and Australian and US troops should return and no more innocent civilians should die !

    Many thanks,

    • Hey Fabian,

      That is great to hear!!! We meet every Tuesday at 5pm, but we may change that to 4:30 in the coming weeks, in the Palo Duro Room (UC second Floor).

      If you want to contact us directly, email sdsuhtx@gmail.com.

  4. How would I get involved in learning more about Palestine, and BDS? I have no car so I cannot attend meetings. Perhaps someone could email me at pickering_dustin@yahoo.com Thanks!

  5. I would love to join this organization this upcoming fall semester. I see that for last year meetings were held every tuesday at 5 pm (argh!!!). Is that going to be true for this year? I won’t be able to make it as I’ll be in class Tuesdays and thurdays from 4-5:30 and 5:30-7.
