The PSC has received word about the following protest:

Martin Peretz has been spouting hatred for 25 years, most recently that ‘Muslim life is cheap.’ On Saturday, 25 September, Harvard University’s Social Studies Committee will honor him with a $650,000 fund in his name. It’s time to talk back to Marty and take back Harvard by standing up against racism and bigotry. Join us!

A PARTY FOR MARTY
SATURDAY, 25 SEPTEMBER
9:30 A.M.
HARVARD UNIVERSITY | SCIENCE CENTER

Materials provided.

Marty In his own words:

ON ARABS
“Arab society is, well—how do I say this? —hidebound and backward.”

ON MUSLIMS
“‘Frankly, Muslim life is cheap, especially for Muslims.’ This is a statement of fact, not value.”

ON LATINOS
“Latin society with all of its characteristic deficiencies:  congenital corruption, authoritarian government, anarchic politics, near-tropical work habits, stifling social mores, Catholic dogma with the usual unacknowledged compromises, an anarchic counter-culture and increasingly violent modes of conflict.”

ON PALESTINIANS
“Terrorism … is about the sum total of what the Palestinians have bestowed on our civilization during the last five decades.”

ON AFRICAN-AMERICANS
“So many in the black population are afflicted by cultural deficiencies. … I would guess that in the ghetto a lot of mothers don’t appreciate the importance of schooling.”
