Firing Back:

Ward Churchill v. University of Colorado

July 31, 2007



In a time when our basic civil and human rights are endangered it is 
critical to resist those who would have us believe that the current 
state of affairs is inevitable. We cannot allow ourselves to be silenced.



We do not believe the University of Colorado fired Ward Churchill 
because of so-called "research misconduct."   The attack on Ward 
Churchill is part of a larger effort to silence criticism of 
government policies and to discredit alternative, particularly 
Indigenous, histories and perspectives; an attack spearheaded by 
neoconservative groups like  Lynne Cheney's American Council of 
Trustees and Alumni (ACTA).  For more on CU President Hank Brown's 
ties to ACTA, see 
<http://wardchurchill.net/files/cu_acta_ad.pdf>wardchurchill.net/files/cu_acta_ad.pdf 
.



There are many fronts in the struggle to preserve access to truth and 
the freedom to think and speak critically. In addition to whatever 
avenues you are already pursuing to redress injustice, we urge you to 
support Ward Churchill's lawsuit against the University of Colorado.
