50TH ANNIVERSARY EVENTS PANEL DISCUSSION Saturday, October 13, 7 to 9 pm Presidio Officers Club 50 Moraga Ave, San Francisco (free ticket registration) ON SITE COMMEMORATION Sunday, October 14, 1 to 3 pm Fort Scott Stockade 1213 Ralston (near Storey), San Francisco During the Vietnam War era, the Presidio Stockade was a military prison notorious for its poor conditions and overcrowding with many troops imprisoned for refusing to fight in the Vietnam War. When Richard Bunch, a mentally disturbed prisoner, was shot and killed on October 11th, 1968, Presidio inmates began organizing. Three days later, 27 Stockade prisoners broke formation and walked over to a corner of the lawn, where they read a list of grievances about their prison conditions and the larger war effort and sang We Shall Overcome. The prisoners were charged and tried for "mutiny," and several got 14 to 16 years of confinement. Meanwhile, disillusionment about the Vietnam War continued to grow inside and outside of the military.

Womens March on the Pentagon to Confront the Bi-partisan War Machine On October 21, 1967, 50,000 people marched on the Pentagon in opposition to the escalation of US imperialist aggression in Vietnam. An anti-war rally was held at West Potomac park near the Lincoln Memorial where 70,000 people had gathered for a concert by musician and peace activist Phil Ochs. Both groups joined together and marched; this action was to be known as the March on the Pentagon. 
During 1967 there were numerous anti-war marches across the nation in all major cities including New York, Boston, San Francisco and Washington, DC.

Tue Oct 30 - Wed Oct 31: Speak at the Pakistani National Defense University conference on The Geopolitics of Knowledge in the 21st Century
National Defense University, Islamabad, Pakistan
Contact Junaid Ahmad
tackle the series of geopolitical and civilizational, cultural, and epistemological ruptures taking place that simply cannot be understood by the conventional wisdom of the hackneyed and out-of-date analytical toolbox of the heyday of the Cold War years of the 20th century. The theories and explanatory models of that time, centering on classical modernization theory and International Relations theory, and so on - seem insufficiently robust, if not downright discredited, in explaining the multiple, cascading crises that afflict humanity today. The attempt of this conference is two-fold; our first inaugural conference at NDU (March 2017) collected a number of principally Muslim intellectuals addressing issues impinging directly on the Islamic world. This conference is more ambitious in the discourse that it would like to generate, and policy prescriptions that could potentially emerge on the global level and their meaning for the well-being of Pakistan, other parts of the global South, and the bulk of humanity that is attempting to forge a counter-hegemony.
