Protesting the war(s): Lessons from 1972
By Lydia Howell , TC Daily Planet
September 23, 2008

As the U.S. occupation of Iraq grinds into its sixth year and activists
address the militarized police response to protests at the Republican
National Convention, a remarkable just-published historical document
should be required reading. Ed Felien's Take the Streets! was written in
1972, during and immediately after that year's tidal wave of Minnesota
protests of the Vietnam War.

Felien's eyewitness account balances reporting with an analysis of
politics, tactics, and strategy that remain sharply relevant to today's
anti-war movement.

Hear Ed Felien on Friday, September 26, at 11 a.m. on Catalyst on
KFAI, 90.3 FM (Minneapolis) and 106.7 FM (St. Paul). The program will
also be archived at Felien will discuss Take the Streets! on
Sunday, September 28, at 3 p.m. at May Day Books, 301 Cedar Ave. (in the
basement of Hub Bicycle), Minneapolis.

Felien, his shoulder-length hair now more gray than blonde, but still
wearing t-shirts and jeans, is best known as the publisher and editor of
the Minneapolis newspaper Southside Pride and the now-defunct Pulse of
the Twin Cities, a "grassroots alternative" weekly newspaper. In 1972,
Felien--who holds a Ph.D. in European drama from the University of
Minnesota--was an assistant professor at the University of Minnesota's
Experimental College. He paid a price for his anti-war organizing on campus.

"They worked hard to fire me. I heard from other professors that the
university put the word out. I was purged, and then blacklisted, from
academia," laughs Felien.
